So Manjaro, debian, and even ubuntu 16.04 were all successful in a live boot to install from my usb. However, i attempted to do a fresh install of ubuntu 17.10 with a live boot from my usb and my laptop just doesnt detect it and it goes straight to grub. I wanted to test if the usb was corrupt so i reinstalled manjaro on the usb and then started up the system and manjaro was live booted, so the usb is fine, which it should be. I have no idea where to go with this, but i would like to get ubuntu 17.10 on my system. Any ideas?
I used rufus and etcher.
UPDATE: So i reinstalled debian on the usb to live boot off the laptop and when i checked BIOS i noticed that when looking at USB HDD in boot priority, BIOS was actually detecting the name of the usb and listing it whereas when i put Ubuntu on the usb it showed USB HDD: as empty, It wasn't actually detecting a device.
UPDATE 2: Ran in legacy mode, usb was detected and i was able to install 17.10. Only problem is, i didnt know that i couldnt just revert back to uefi and now i just get a black screen with a grub terminal. Im guessing i have to run boot repair, but i cant because the usb isnt being detected in uefi mode.
