I am trying to run Ubuntu 16.04 from USB that passes Ubuntu disk defect check but it keeps having an internal error. Current OS windows 10 came with ASUS G11cd.

  • Tell us more about your configuration. Windows 10 is on an internal hard disk or SSD? Windows 10 boots fine, yes? Ubuntu is on a USB disk drive, or USB key, or? How did you install Ubuntu? What's the exact error message?

  • Are you trying to install Ubuntu from the USB? Is it a flash drive? I don't understand uui formatted. It just sounds like you built Ubuntu to a flash drive, and it didn't go right. Burn Ubuntu to a DVD and you won't have any trouble booting it. Please report back.

  • should i format the dvdr as a dvd then or like a usb (live)? the idea here is to try ubuntu 1st, not to replace win10.

Try switching the USB stick to a different USB port -- especially if you have both USB 2.0 and 3.0 ports on your computer. Sometimes one will work long enough to start a boot, but stop being able to read the stick partway through.

You can also try going into your bios and enabling Legacy USB.

As per our discussion in the comments, burn Ubuntu to a DVD and you won't have any trouble booting it. If you need help burning a DVD, please refer to:
