Good day! I restarted my laptop today after it hung up on me. When it booted, it greeted me with the BIOS screen. Of course I tried to reboot again and the same thing happened. I looked at the boot tab, but the list of boot options are blank.
I am using asus ROG G751JT. It is dual booted with windows 10(upgraded from windows 8) and linux mint 17.
I would like to reformat this but everytime I insert a windows 8 usb installer, it slows down (like it takes 20 mins. before moving to the next screen in the install wizard). The farthest I have gone is this screen but the mouse's loading animation just shows up, the entire window is disabled, and it's stuck like for hours!!! The partitions show up though, but I cant click on them due to the window being disabled.
I have also tried using a linux mint installer and I keep getting
input/output error during read on /dev/sda when trying to install through the wizard. How do I resolve this issue? I hope this is isn't hardware related. This problem is really getting on my nerves. Please help.
Thanks for the help.
