I have a new HP Stream 11" laptop, and I would like to install Ubuntu 18.04.
At the moment, I have secure boot and legacy support both disabled. USB is first in the boot order. Plugging in a bootable Ubuntu 18.04 flash drive (created with Rufus) and turning on the PC, I eventually get the text menu that starts off with "Try Ubuntu without installing".
When I choose this, I get the Ubuntu name with five orange dots beneath it. After the second dot lights up, I get the following:
[ 0.390899] ACPI BIOS Error (bug): Could not resolve symbol [\_SB.IPPF._STA.POSV], AE_NOT_FOUND (20190703/psargs-330) [ 0.390984] ACPI Error: Aborting method \_SB.IPPF._STA due to previous error (AE_NOT_FOUND) (20190703/psparse-531)
The two lines above are repeated three more times (with increasing numbers in the leading brackets).
BusyBox v1.27.2 (Ubuntu 1:1.25.2-2ubuntu3.2) built-in shell (ash) Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands. (initramfs) mount: mounting /cow on /root failed: Invalid argument overlay mount failed
Pressing Enter gets
help brings up
Built-in commands followed by a long list.
I would be happy to wipe Windows entirely for a linux laptop, but so far even the tryout option isn't working.
Thanks for any leads.
