    I am not able to boot from pendrive

  2. Dionisis says:

    When I created the partitions and clicked continue, I got a message “partition #6 could not be formatted“.

    What should I do ?

    • Matei Cezar says:

      Delete the partition and recreate a new partition. Also, from CLI (use ALT+F2 or F3… to enter CLI) you can launch fdisk or parted utility and verify partition table.

    So after following these steps to install Ubuntu, i rebooted and went to the grub menu to find out that my windows 7 partition is gone. I updated grub and the problem remains.

    Please help because my other drives are still there i just cant access them. My main windows partition was 650+ gb while my Ubuntu is only 100 gb. Any help is appreciated
