Hi!
I've try Rufus on Windows 10 and Unetbootin on macOS to create the bootable USB, none stick works...
I get the menu on a black background and choose "Try Ubuntu without installing", but then all I get is a black screen.
What am I missing?
Thanks!

Hi, can't remember exactly but i think you have to type e then type nomodeset (take a look at my link)...

Some hardware computer's hardware may have problems with some of the Desktop drivers. You can fix this by typing e at the Try Ubuntu without installing option from the initial black screen menu. Then replace the words quiet splash with nomodeset. Then hit F10 to boot.
