I use a Dell XPS 15' 9560. It has 16GB RAM, i7 processor, Nvidia GTX1050 graphic card, 512 SSD. I ran Windows10 home until now. I've finally tweaked some settings in BIOS config and installed Ubuntu. But, when I click restart to complete installation, it freezes my computer. I then have to do a force shutdown. Still, when I boot the computer it freezes on boot as well. I'm currently running ubuntu from a bootable pen drive. I've tried a new config and I'm reinstalling ubuntu alongside right now. Need help please.
This most likely needs the
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash nouveau.modeset=0" to
But you can only do that if you can boot..
So, you would need to press
e when you see the grub load screen.
and then manually edit the grub settings
so that the
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT line looks like this:
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash nouveau.modeset=0"
assuming that allows you to boot, add the setting permanently
sudo gedit /etc/default/grup
and making the change there.
