I tried to install Ubuntu 13.10 on my XPS 15 Haswell.

The hardware is:

Intel i7 4702HQ (+Intel HD Graphics 4600)

Nvidia GT550M

16GB RAM

512GB mSATA SSD

I had already Win 8.1 installed and tried to create a dualboot system. The installer did only launch with the "nomodeset" option, else I got a blackscreen after the splash. Installing was possible without problems then.

But now I can't boot into the graphical inteface. Without "nomodeset" it hangs on loading the nouveau driver. When I set the "nomodeset" option in GRUB it hangs on loading iwlwifi:

9.730405 iwlwifi 0000:006:00:0: No association and the time event is already over...

13.861085 iwlwifi 0000:006:00:0: No association and the time event is already over...

...

Can you help me please?

Thanks in advance

Most probably it is due to missing driver for your graphics card. You could install bumblebee to solve this issue.
