[UNSOLVED] Can’t choose installation type Ubuntu 18.04

I don't know why, but i have a unique problem I've never seen. I've been looking everywhere for weeks and I can't find a solution. Immediately when I boot up Ubuntu a black screen with white text says something along the lines of "something has gone seriously wrong: import_mok_state() failed" and more errors saying file not found. Right after this I'm able to boot up Ubuntu though, strange as it is. This is what I've done: Disable secure boot, disable fast boot, shrink 150gb from my 1tb ssd hard drive, and it is unallocated. Burn Ubuntu 18.04 LTS onto a SanDisk flash drive with Rufus 3.4. Click f12 after restarting my laptop. Select boot from SanDisk(Flash drive). Then when I go to install it something very weird happens. These are the pictures of the order of installation. Keep in mind, I did not skip a single step, and It doesnt show me possible installation types. My laptop is a Dell Inspiron 5570 1tb SSD Intel i7 core processor. I have tried ubuntu 18.04, ubuntu 18.1, xubuntu, linux mint and more but the same thing always happens. Ive also gotten help from someone during the process, and they were very confused on why it happened. Please help, and thanks a lot for reading all of this haha. Sorry for the low quality images, and the order is messed up. Once again, thanks a lot.

BTW: I’m trying to dual boot Ubuntu and Windows 10, also when i click the + or change it freezes the installer, and it says it is not responding shortly after.

Hi Gavin, and welcome to Linux.org. Quick question. Did you verify your Ubuntu .iso prior to burning it to you thumb drive? If not, I'd sugest you do that. What you are describing sounds like a corrupted .iso file. If that is the case the fix will be easy. Just download another Ubuntu .iso file, verify the checksum, then burn it to a DVD or Thumb Drive.

Ive done a little bit of looking online, and it appears I have to download bash on windows. Is there a simpler / better solution or is this the best way?

Hi folks, and @GavinTFI welcome to linux.org :)

I note it has been a 5 days or so since we have heard from the OP.

Gavin, has anything new developed, or are you still stuck?

BTW that bash from Windows reference is nonsense, but can you give us a link?

I would try using a different usb drive. the chances that all those linux distros were messed up are small. also try it on a different computer.

I mean I’m not trying to get Linux to solve it, I actually want to use it and my old pc is pretty bad, and I wouldn’t use it

So I solved my import_mok_state error and now it says “AE_NOT_FOUND” and “cannot get size 0x800000000000” Couldn’t find the video mentioned however, it also wasnt the bug I had though
