This is an installation on pure erased laptop (specification at bottom of post).
I create a bootable USB stick using rufus-3.8.exe based on ubuntu-19.10-desktop-amd64. However, upon loading of the USB drive, there is an error message shown below:


Could not get fio for li->DeviceHandle: Invalid Parameter
Failed to get device path
Failed to find fs: Invalid Parameter
Failed to load image \EFI\BOOT\grubx64.efi: Invalid Parameter
start_image() returned Invalid Parameter

I have managed to solve this. As I was reading online, legacy laptop has to be used with bootable USD with rufus with this option of 'Add fixes for old BIOSes (extra partition, align, etc.)'. I create my bootable USB stick again with this option checked, and it works now!

The laptop is now blank without any OS. I am sure the laptop is operating well, because I have successfully installed Windows 7 and it ran went before I erase the whole hard disk.

The model is Fujitsu T901. I have copied the specification to below:
Processor: Intel? Core? i7-2640M processor (2.8 GHz, 4 MB)
Memory: 2x 4 GB DDR3, 1333 MHz, PC3-10600, SO DIMM
Hard disk drives: SSD SATA, 128 GB, 2.5-inch
WLAN: Atheros Minicard b/g/n, Intel? Centrino? 6205 802.11 a/b/g/n
