Could I have some advice on how to install Ubuntu 20.04 over Windows 10? I have been using Ubuntu for some 15 years and have installed, uninstalled, reinstalled many different editions and flavors of it. Last week I made a clean install of the 20.04 edition in my laptop and it works flawlessly. Now I want to do away with W10 on my desktop and have Ubuntu instead. No dual booting.
But installation always stops and freezes at "Installation Type" screen. Instead of the usual options of what you want to do with Ubuntu, I get a blank, frozen screen. If I try and click on one of the fields, then I get from the background a message "Sorry Ubuntu 20.04 has experienced an internal error etc". The only possible way of moving forward is to turn off the computer, which of course stops the installation process.
My machine is a Dell Inspiron 2530.
I once got an error message "Install Ubuntu 20.04 is not responding" and the option to "Force Quit" or "Wait". Nothing happened when I waited.
Windows 10 boots with no problem from the USB drive. The USB key is not damaged either.
