I tried to install Linux Mint or Ubuntu on a lenovo Q180, it freezes when installing grub2. Used a live usb stick to install it.
I was told to "rewrite the mbr" to fix the problem. Trying so I installed boot-repair, bit it only offers me sdb which is my usb stick, not the hard drive. I have no idea what's wrong, in gparted and in the setup process it appears normal.
All data including the windows recovery partition is already intentionally deleted.
