I am currently trying to buy a 2in1 laptop for my studies and want to install Ubuntu on it.
I already bought two different laptop models.
With the first one, the installation of Ubuntu failed and it reported that this error was most likely caused by hard disk failure. After this error, I could not get the hard disk to show up at all anywhere (not in Ubuntu Live, System Rescue CD, GParted Live or BIOS).
Now I thought this was due to the SSD being broken at arrival. So I bought a different model but the behaviour is the same and now I sit here with two broken laptops. I think it is highly unlikely that both new laptops had broken SSDs from the start but instead most likely that the Ubuntu Installation is actually actively corrupting the SSD and bricking the laptops.
Is that error known? I could not find anything here or via Google. And is there any way to save the SSDs?
Thank you very much in advance.
P.S.: The laptop models were Lenovo Ideapad Flex 5 Gen 7 AMD & Lenovo Thinkbook 14s Yoga Gen 2.
