Question InstallError please help.

I get a error when trying to boot it. It says "Selected boot image did not Authenticate. Press <enter> to continue." What is wrong?

Maybe something related to SecureBoot? That's just a guess though since you haven't provided any information about your hardware or what it is that you're trying to boot. If my hunch is correct and you're on a piece of x86 hardware, you should be able to go into your BIOS and disable SecureBoot. Without a few more details, though, I don't think you're going to get muich help...

The first rule of computing - maintain complete backups. Hard drives do fail sometimes.
Unfortunately, you may have fallen victim to this bug in the installer program.
"Most Linux and Ubuntu users don't go for the automatic options provided by the installers and they manually install the new operating system where they want, but there are also quite a few users who have made use of an option called "Erase Ubuntu x and Reinstall," which, unfortunately, will delete the entire hard drive."
There are utilities that you can try to restore the deleted files, but it is not easy or certain.
