I'm new to Linux and this is the first time i tried to Linux. My laptop is Dell XPS 9360. When ever i use the to boot elementary OS(i tried Ubuntu too and get the same error message), i get to boot but when i run the installer and at the choose partition page there is nothing to choose. And when i press the + - change button it opens a window telling me installer crashed this is the error message:

 Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/ubiquity/plugins/ubi-partman.py", line 1302, in on_partition_list_edit_activate
    self.partman_dialog(devpart, partition, create=False)
  File "/usr/lib/ubiquity/ubiquity/plugin.py", line 48, in wrapper
    return target(self, *args, **kwargs)
  File "/usr/lib/ubiquity/plugins/ubi-partman.py", line 983, in partman_dialog
    if ('can_resize' not in partition or not partition['can_resize'] or
TypeError: argument of type 'NoneType' is not iterable

I am using UEFI boot option and I've tried both with secure boot on/off and fastboot on/off. When i tried legacy boot it doesn't even and shows an error message saying,

kernal panic and initramfs unpacking failed junk in compressed archive
  • Hi Edwin, welcome to eOS SE. Your participation is much appreciated. I have made some changes on your post to make it look better though your choice of words DO describe your problem well. – Hasan Jan 8 at 13:05
