Hi, I recently tried to install Xubuntu (20.04 I think) "over" MX Linux by deleting/overwriting the latter. I created a USB stick using the burner on MX-Linux and before I did this I checked the downloaded xubuntu iso with the SHASUM "thing" and all seemed well. I managed to get into the boot menu eventually by pressing F12 and was able to access the stick and commenced the installation process. It seemed to go well and Xubuntu seemed to be working. However when I rebooted I got the screen entitled Gnu Grub Version 2.04 "Minimal BASH-like line editing is supported.For the first word, TAB lists possible command completions.Anywhere else TAB lists possible device or file completions" Below that is displayed "grub>(flashing cursor)". All the advice I have seen suggests things like CTRL/ALT/DEL then "hammering" the key (F12 for me) to access the boot menu. I have tried this with absolutely no success. Indeed, all of the advice I have found seems to be centred around accessing the boot menu and I am simply unable to do this. Any thoughts? Is it new PC time? Incidentally I am currently using a half decent laptop rather than a mobile or tablet so I CAN access the internet properly and download stuff and make USB sticks and the like if that helps.
