After installing (with no issues) EOS several weeks back, I was learning daily how to use it on a dual boot Windows 10 laptop.
One night I was notified of low disk space, with something like 1 mb left. I tried to empty the trash and while I would hear the splash sound, the files wouldn't go away. I tried opening it as admin..same results.
I figured I would try again the next day as I was tired. Trying to load EOS the next day, I got the "e" load screen for a few seconds, the it just went black. After researching for several days seeing if I could expand the partition from W10, thinking that would let me back in, I found it was impossible, so I then went about deleting said partition and trying to find ways to recover my data (which wasn't the end of the world if I couldn't as I had backups on usb) to no avail.
So I gave up and thought, well why not try another linux. To date, have tried ubuntu 18.04 & 17.04 when that wouldn't work and past 2 days I have tried unsucessfully to install kubuntu latest version. I tried through netbootin all of them, then thought maybe that was the issue. Tried Rufus today with same results. After installing on dual boot, I am told I need to restart and clicking restart the message goes away, but it never reboots. So I manually do it and get the menu to select the linux distro, but it stalls at the splash screen and never loads.
I can't give you any info from terminal, obviously, as I could never get back into any of the installed products once I left setup. I already paid for elementary and thought why don't I just go back to it since I never had an issue installing and getting into it, only a learning curve on how to navigate. But I can't download it again without payment I guess. Can anyone help me get a version of linux that will actually install and run? I was so happy with my EOS side of things.
