    Hi
    i have downloaded Ubuntu 20.04 LTS ,love the last distro

    i created an usbstick with rufus , and i got as started graphic glitches , nvdia nvidia geforce gtx 1050 , i have tried even an older gtx 700 or 750

    with rufus , i have no menu , while with Universal USB Installer ,i have 2 menu entries try ubuntu ,they are the same ,and install ubuntu and install ubuntu (safe)

    using Universal USB Installer , i can use try ubuntu and it works but sometime it does freeze

    it did happen with the prev version
    all the hardware works , using Universal USB Installer to create the usbstick ,but it does freeze when i have to select the destination drive ,in my case a new ssd samsung
    on my compture I have mounted only 1 device , the ssd samsung 860 1tb

    download from ubuntu.com ,torrent version ,to download faster

    i have thought was my hardware , but i have tried to install on a new laptop same issue
    have you noticed such isssues?
    thanks

    I install several Linux distros from USB every week.
    First check the MD5SUM for your download matches with the code on the Ubuntu website.
    Use balenaEtcher to create your bootable USB.

    I wonder if UEFI in the bios is giving you problems with your hardware/driver. I disabled UEFI and only boot from legacy systems and newest version of manjaro installed fine for me.
