Unhappy Trouble installing Kubunto from a live usb boot


Hello, I'm new here and I want to start learning and getting into linux but my main problem is that I can't seem to be able to install Kubunto 15.04 onto my desktop from a live usb. I'm using a usb because I don't have a cd drive. I've tried installing some different linux distros before and didn't get them to work either. I can post the specs and info of my desktop if needed but they seem to be in working order and I don't think its a hardware problem. I used LiveUSB Creator to make my usb and I put the 15.04 Kunbunto iso file into it. I tried turning off UEFI but I'm not exactly sure what that is anyway. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

Here is a photo of what happens after I turn on my desktop and it passes the beep test:

Also, if I have broken any forum rules or if you have any advice on how to make my posts better please let me know.

Hi,

You might have tried to use DuckDuckGo or Google to search for the error message you get. I did and found a lot of answers.
Basically it say:

Press [tab] key
Type in one of the options you get
Press [enter] key.


Cheers

Does the live usb boot to linux and can it be used? I can't access those photo sites.

Notes.

Use 32 bit version if your system only supports 32 bit. I doubt that is the case here since you say uefi secure boot.

Be sure to boot to bios and notice the usb flash drive shows up as a "hard drive."

Move the "hard drive" order up so that your flash drive is now the first in the order of hard drives.

Boot to hard drive, not "usb."

Don't install just yet, we need to get you booted first.

To gdejonge:
Thanks for your post I did pick an option after clicking TAB. I did do further research to try and figure it out but I guess I was looking in the wrong places.

To jefro:
I got everything to work now it seems. Now its just a matter of learning the new OS. I can't seem to change screen saver properties or transfer the OS from my hard drive to ssd. But I'll look into that on my own.

Thanks for your help and time both of you.
