I'm trying to install Ubuntu 16.04 from a USB onto my brand new SSD, but I get the following message (see below). I've seen a bunch of posts about this, but none involving installing onto a new hard drive that doesn't currently have any operating systems installed. At an earlier stage in the process the computer told me that no OS's were detected.
I get no response whether I click "Continue", "Go Back", or even try to close the window. Help?
"This machine's firmware has started the installer in UEFI mode but it looks like there may be existing operating systems already installed using "BIOS compatibility mode". If you continue to install Debian in UEFI mode, it might be difficult to reboot the machine into any BIOS-mode operating systems later.
If you wish to install in UEFI mode and don't care about keeping the ability to boot one of the existing systems, you have the option to force that here. If you wish to keep the option to boot an existing operating system, you should choose NOT to force UEFI installation here."
sudo fdisk -l, the USB LiveDisk itself is listed as Type: EFI (FAT-12/16/32). it's also listed as "Disklabel type: dos"
