I am trying to dual-boot ubuntu mate with Windows 10. I created a Ubuntu Mate 16.04 USB by downloading the .iso image and then running the Universal USB software on a previously FAT32-formatted USB drive in Windows 10. I plugged the Live USB into CPU and then booted up the computer pressing F12 also. Once the boot menu opens, I choose Legacy option for the USB Storage device. Then a screen opens giving the usual options:
Try Ubuntu Mate without installing Install, etc.
I choose first option. The monitor goes blank. CPU is still on but no display and i have to force shutdown by pressing the power button.
I need help with dual-booting.
It could have been that Windows 10 prevents booting from a USB because of the fast start-up option which i have already disabled. In fact, i have typed in "powercfg -h off" in the elevated command prompt. Also i checked that my Windows BIOS mode is indeed Legacy only so trying UEFI booting does not make sense and i have not given it a try.
Can it be that my method of preparing LiveUSB is at fault? Then can someone suggest other methods to do the same and indicate the best way? I have dual-booted the stock Ubuntu distro and Ubuntu mate in past on other computers and never had this issue.
What is bothering me is that the screen with options pops up and only when i do 'Try before installing', the monitor goes blank. I can try recreating a ubuntu usb and do the steps again.
I have tried almost every other way to dual-boot with windows 10 like trying software like rufus, startup disk creator, gparted, etc. I have even tried to partition the USB as NTFS which was not allowed. Can someone please tell me what can be the error? Every time the display just goes dark when i try to boot from the LiveUSB. This is occurring even with Ubuntu unity desktop and other versions of ubuntu like Kubuntu and lubuntu. After having exhausting all options that i could think of, i do not know what is the problem. Please let me know whatever information is needed about my system and i shall publish it here.
