I'm installing Ubuntu 12.04 LTS on my Lenovo y500 with nvidia geforce 750M using uefi. What I've done so far
- Regular install with Ubuntu disc. (through legacy)
- Boot repair (recommended) (through legacy)
- Boot up in UEFI to OS selection screen
When I boot up I get the OS selection screen, but when I select the ubuntu choice, my screen is stuck on a purple screen.
Nothing responds, no F2, Ctrl+Atl+F1, Esc, nothing.
I've tried the following solutions, but have no luck:
Updated Nvidia drivers: http://www.dedoimedo.com/computers/ubuntu-quetzal-nvidia.html That got me to the screen with the ubuntu logo and the dots, but soon after crashed into a black screen with commands. I can also no longer access login terminal via boot recovery
Edited boot command: gfxmode nomodeset did nothing for me
Tried to regular boot through recovery: Got to black screen with login terminal. Could login to access system, but still does not boot to regular ubuntu.
Stuck on purple screen: Nothing changed.
Tried nvidia answer: Unable to install Ubuntu on Lenovo Y500 With this, regular choice boots directly into login terminal, no gui or purple screen freeze.
- Tried sudo nvidia-xconfig. Did not visibly change anything.
- I am booting in UEFI
- I did disable srt
