I have been running Windows 10 pro on a Dell XPS 15 (9560) for some time and would like to dual boot ubuntu. I created an install disk with 18.04 and got similar errors to what are shown below, so I then created a bootable disk using rufus 3.0 with version 16.04 on it hoping this would solve the errors I was getting. I prepared the bios and computer using the very thorough instructions found at https://github.com/rcasero/doc/wiki/Ubuntu-linux-on-Dell-XPS-15-(9560). I get to the GRUB and select the first option, something like "Try Ubuntu without install". When I select this option, the following errors come up:
[ 0.037972] ACPI Error: [\_SB_.PCI0.XHC_.RHUB.HS11] Namespace lookup failure, AE_NOT_FOUND (20170531/dswload-210) [ 0.037979] ACPI Exception: AE_NOT_FOUND, During name lookup/catalog (2017053 1/psobject-252) [ 0.038014] ACPI Exception: AE_NOT_FOUND, (SSDT:xh:rvp11) while loading table (20170531/tbxf load-228) [ 0.040866] ACPI Error: 1 table load failures, 12 successful (20170531/tbxf lo ad-246) [ 12.764409] usb 2-2: device descriptor read/8, error -110 [ 18.140497] usb 2-2: device descriptor read/8, error -110 [ 21.432576] sd 2:0:0:0: [sda] No Caching mode page found [ 21.432603] sd 2:0:0:0: [sda] Assuming drive cache: write through [ 48.096001] watchdog: BUG: soft lockup - CPU#0 stuck for 22s!

I am not sure what I am doing wrong. I am very new to Ubuntu, I used it some in the past about 6 years ago. I am by no means an advanced user, and have run into quite a bit of trouble trying to install it. Thanks for any help you may be able to offer!
