Greetings AskUbuntu community !
I have a ASUS X55 (Intel(R) Core i5-5200 CPU @ 2.20GHz with 8GB RAM) I currently have Windows 10 , Version 1607.
Last week I had Ubuntu running on my computer however it was slightly buggy so I decided to remove it and try to re install it. I removed it, however I am having extreme difficulty trying to put it back on. I've watched countless YouTube installation videos , tried RUFUS , UUI and I still cant get it to work. I've spent 2-3 hours trying to solve this. I am new to Ubuntu so im hoping the community can help me with this one so I can pay it forward further down the line.
I also checked the hashes for my Ubuntu 16.04.1 iso and those are fine
When I write the iso to a USB and then attempt to boot from USB using (settings >Update and security > recovery > advanced startup) I am brought to a grub prompt grub>.
What the heck can I do to fix this ? This is beginning to really irritate me because I have no idea what I can google to remedy this problem.
Any help would be appreciated !
I have also tried booting into BIOS and changing the boot order so ubuntu is #1 but this brings the same problem I outlined above.
Thanks - KG
