Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I installed ubuntu and it said it successfully installed. I restarted on it gives me an error saying " kvm: microcode failed " and then some file location and after that it loads the command line.

I can execute commands from there
