Device stuck on "booting from hard disk"

Hi guys,

thanks for your help it finally worked

SeaBIOS reports ‘Booting From Hard Disk’ for USB drives, so that’s not indicative of anything.

If your USB isn’t booting, it’s not formatted/written in a way that’s compatible with SeaBIOS. As most/all ISOs are “hybrid” type, the best way to write to USB is as an image (dd, etcher, etc) vs using some crappy tool like unetbootin

I think it was because of the bootloader but it finally worked. Thaks so much for your help!

We need more information: what version exactly you downloaded, what are your other laptops (it may be helpful) etc. There’s a simply step you can do: download the Ubuntu image again and copy it to the USB and try again.
