I have a Window 10 installed on a SSD, and previously there was also the Ubuntu 18.04 dual boot in the same SSD. I formatted the Ubuntu 18.04 partition, and hoping to do a fresh install of the new ubuntu 20.04.
However, I am stuck during the installation, right after picking the partition for root and for /home, I have tried many times, sometimes it's "Removing Conflicting Operating System Files", sometimes it's "Creating ext4 for /home", and there is really something loading, but it takes forever (4 - 5 hours) for it to run and still not finishing...
The only unusual thing I have noticed is that during the installation Ubuntu did not recognize I have the Windows 10 OS installed. I looked online and ran the error checking on C:, then do the chkdsk cmd on C:, but the installation still could not detect the win10 OS.
I have also tried disabling fast boot of windows 10, removing the Virtual machines which have dynamic memory enabled and all the corresponding files, but none of them work. I have also tried to install Kubuntu, but similar problem appears.
I now have 3 live USBs, 2 with Ubuntu 20.04 from different downloads, and 1 with Kubuntu. Please help.
There is an error message saying that "the attempt to mount a filesystem with type vfat in SCSI3 (0,0,0), partition #1 (SDA) at /boot/efi failed" , right after I have performed the partitioning, there are 2 options , go back to the partition table or continue, and I clicked continue.
