I have installed a dual boot system on an UEFI board with Windows 7 and Ubuntu 13.04 (both 64bit). Ubuntu is freezing during bootup very often. In most of the cases it's stuck on a blank orange background - but sometimes it's also freezing during the Ubuntu logo (with those "loading dots"). Occasionally, it ends up showing a console with strange codes like "([[2663". The only thing I can do then is pressing the reset button and trying again - there is a very small chance that the boot process succeeds showing me the login screen.
If I want to shut down or restart system (assumed I managed it to start Ubuntu), this does not work either. There is no signal on my screen anymore, but the PC keeps running and I have to restart / switch it off manually.
All of the problems mentioned above are appearing on Ubuntu only, while Windows 7 is able to boot, restart and shut down perfectly.
It might be important to know that I'm using a 128 GB SSD drive. I've read about a connection between the usage of SSDs and Ubuntu boot difficulties, but as those questions have been asked already one or two years ago, I cannot believe that there is still no solution available. Am I wrong?
Other hardware used in my system:
- Gigabyte H87-HD3
- GeForce GTX 760
- Logitech G19 gaming keyboard
- Intel i5 processor
Thanks for answers!
