I am trying to install Ubuntu 18.04 from a USB stick.
My computer setup is as follows:
- MB: Asus X99-A USB3.1
- CPU: Intel 5960X
- GPU: Nvidia GTX 970
- Screen (it might be relevant): Asus ROG Swift PG278Q (only possible to run with DP)
I have done some troubleshooting:
- Update to latest BIOS and restore to optimized defaults
- Disabled Fast Boot
- Disabled Secure Boot
These changes have not had any effect on the current problem.
This system should run as a dual boot with Windows 10 which is installed in UEFI mode. I have also tried to install in legacy mode. I see the purple screen, then after several seconds there is a crash with other graphic errors. The graphical error in the picture below is when trying to install in UEFI mode.
I know that this is probably not enough information to solve the issue, so please ask for the information you would think is relevant.
I can add that I have had similar errors when installing Ubuntu 16.04 and Linux Mint 19. I did somehow manage to install Linux Mint 18.1 a couple of years ago.
