I recently downloaded ubuntu 15.10 on my laptop, which is a dell inspiron 7000 laptop with 16 GB RAM & intel core 17 nvidia graphics and a uefi secured on booting system. My computer is build with a pre installed windows 10 home edition and I want to dual boot windows 10 with ubuntu 15.10
So I have partitioned 60GB on my HDD for the ubuntu, downloaded the iso image file for Ubuntu 15.10 64bit from the ubuntu website, created a live USB via universal USB creator, and then tried booting. I got to the grub of Ubuntu and headed to the "Install Ubuntu" and then got into the purple screen with "Ubuntu" in the middle and the 5 grey dots that load red/orange.
The problem is that it freezes at that point, and the dots stop turning red/orange. I have also tried choosing the "Try Ubuntu before installing" option to no avail. I tried to disable my secured boot and switch from uefi to legacy mode. but in all those cases I still cannot get through the loading screen to install. I also tried using two different USBs one is a USB 3.0 and the other a USB 2.0. both still results in the same frozen screen.
I have also tried to look around online: google, youtube, forums, etc.
Please, I would really appreciate it if someone could help me figure this out.
Thank you in advance.
