So, I bought a 1tb HHD to install Ubuntu on with plenty of room for files and games. I also dowloaded the 16.04 ISO and used RUFUS to put that on a 32gb USB stick. After that, i unplug my SSD which i have windows 10 installed on and another HHD which has my Steam games on and some other crap. I went into my BIOS and set the USB stick as my boot priority and booted into Ubuntu. I changed my "quick splash" in try ubuntu to "nomodeset" and hit F10 (because of nvidia GPU errors) All goes well, I install Ubuntu, select the drive, and wait. "Fatal error, Failed to install boot-loader" I have 3 options, and each lead to horror.
- select different drive
- continue without boot-loader
- Cancel "messing up with boot and crap", I don't remember much
I click on "Continue without Boot-loader" and hit "OK". The OK button is unresponsive. -_- welp, Seems to be a Bug (it has been for 6 years i heard)
Next move, Restart PC (worst decision of my life) I thought my windows would be safe, since i unplugged it and wasn't to worried, Right? I'm not 100% sure, but i think my Windows crap is safe. I don't care about my steam games since i can reinstall them, i just want to boot from my SSD which i have been doing. My friend said that my Grub was messed with, and i have to reinstall that. I choose Boot-Repair as my weapon, and fired it up. (still on Ubuntu OS) "Scanning systems (os-prober). This may require several minutes..." I wait 2 hours and nothing. At this point, I cant use Ubuntu (Im currently typing this on the "try Ubuntu option") and my Windows 10 is done for, or so i think. I anyone could solve this problem, allowing me to just boot into windows again, I'd be glad to donate to you on Paypal.
