I am trying and failing to install Ubuntu from a bootable USB. The following are my specs:
Precision 5820 Tower XCTO Base
Intel Xeon W-2135 3.7GHz, 4.5GHz Turbo, 6C, 8.25M Cache, HT, (140W) DDR4-2666
16GB 2666MHz DDR4 RDIMM ECC
Nvidia P2010 GeForce GT 640
Current OS: Windows 7
The initial problem occurred after I attempted to install Ubuntu using UEFI boot from flash drive (Image 1). When I run this, I get hit with a black screen with an underscore flashing in the top left corner.
I dug around the internet, and found that editing the 'Ubuntu install' option in the GRUB menu proved to be a successful solution for many - on the line that starts with 'linux', I tried adding the keyword "nomodeset" right before "quiet splash", as well as adding "nouveau.modeset=0" at the end of the line (Image 2).
These were done on separate attempts, and both yielded a black screen that displays the message "Error parsing PCC subspaces from PCCT" (Image 3). I tried googling various fixes for this, but without luck so far. Probably because there also seems to be a power fault of some sorts.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
