I am trying to install Ubuntu desktop version 16.04 using a USB stick. I have downloaded a program (the one recommended on the Ubuntu website) that turns the USB stick in to a bootable USB stick. I then boot from that and this comes up:

GNU GRUB version 2.02~beta2-36ubuntu3

Install Ubuntu Server
OEM install (for manufacturers)
Install MAAS Region Controller
Install MAAS Rack Controller
Check Disc for defects
Rescue a broken system

I have installed Ubuntu on another machine and the only option that came up was:

Install Ubuntu

It looks like you downloaded a copy of Ubuntu server, not the desktop version. Here is the link to the correct download.
