I have a Dell XPS which had Ubuntu on it but it started playing up so booted from USB in the hope to install a fresh version but I now get the message saying
You need at least 8.6 GB disk space to install Ubuntu.
When I do fdisk I get the following
ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo fdisk -l Disk /dev/loop0: 1.5 GiB, 1553670144 bytes, 3034512 sectors Units: sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes Disk /dev/sda: 7.2 GiB, 7747397632 bytes, 15131636 sectors Units: sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes Disklabel type: dos Disk identifier: 0x38f8fce6 Device Boot Start End Sectors Size Id Type /dev/sda1 * 2048 15131635 15129588 7.2G c W95 FAT32 (LBA) ubuntu@ubuntu:~$
Disk usage analyzer also doesn't recognise the drive on the laptop. When I try and boot into the laptop I get a load of varios errors before being dumped into BusyBox
Any suggestions on how to wipe it all and start from fresh? The BIOS seems to recognise it fine
When switching on the laptop (without USB), a screen about ACPI errors comes up but goes quickly into a Ubuntu loading screen (with 5 dots under the logo). After a few mins I get thrown into busybox (can't upload screenshots) but a few errors about:
ACPI error: Method parse/execution failed
