Hello

I just loaded Ubuntu for the first time having not used Linux before, and after completing the installation and restarting the computer it comes up with 'invalid partition table'.
To continue I have to press enter.

Does anyone know what this means and how to fix it?

cheers
David

G'day David, Welcome to Linux.org

Do you have a SSD? (solid state drive)

Is this a Dell PC?
