Linux Mint Ubuntu Debian CentOS Dual Boot Install Issues

The best way to avoid this problem is to understand how your BIOS is setup to boot.

Often newer machines will default to U(EFI) which is different than the traditional MBR/Legacy mode.

The problem is that this may not be apparent, often a BIOS Boot Menu will show a Legacy Boot Option and EFI Option without defining it.

A good example of this is if your USB is called "Kingston" you may see in your Boot Menu "Kingston" and also "Ubuntu".

Choosing the name of your USB will mean it is booting and installing as Legacy/BIOS mode.  This will normally result in you being unable to boot after installing depending on your BIOS.

The best way forward would be to choose the EFI boot option which is "Ubuntu" to avoid this problem.

Alternatively some BIOS give you the option to have Auto/Dual mode (Legacy and UEFI) but for many that only have one you should be aware of the above.
