I have been trying to get Ubuntu 16.04.4 stable and running on my new XPS 15 9570 for about two weeks with no success. The farthest that I have managed is getting the OS installed in dual boot alongside windows 10. When I log in for the first time using nouveau.modeset=0 and acpi=off in the boot parameters, the gui is incredibly slow and my CPU is working at around 60-70%. This lead me to assume that there is something wrong with my Nvidia graphics card drivers (my xps has the 1050Ti), yet I have tried many things and nothing has worked.
sudo apt-get purge nvidia* (then re-installing different drivers up to 396), this causes the computer to hang on reboot and freeze at the splash screen, when manually rebooted with the power button I get stuck in a login loop.
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:graphics-drivers/ppa, sudo apt update, sudo apt upgrade (this causes the exact same login problem)
Software and updates -> additional drivers -> using NVIDIA binary driver version -xxx (upon reboot the computer will hang, and needs to be manually shut down with the power button, when I restart it presents the same login problem)
This has been extremely frustrating, so if anyone has any ideas of how to proceed please let me know.
