Installing Ubuntu 18.04.1 Desktop on a a Lenovo M58p Intel C2D machine.
Boot process stalls with the following console messages (repeating, timing out, and then re-attempting):
"Start job is running for Hold until boot process finishes up (time run / no limit)" "Start Job is running for Holds Snappy Daemon refresh (time run / no limit)" "Start Job is running for Wait until snapd is fully seeded (run time / no limit)"
Aside: RunTime = a timer counting how long the service has been running for
I've dug around online for about a day. Have tried booting while holding the Shift key, I've wiggled the mouse, swapped in different video cards; but can't get past this. Even left the machine for 2 hours to see if it would get past this without any luck.
I'm going nutts
Any ideas as to how I can get past this so I can install Ubuntu?
- Downloaded the Ubuntu ISO and used YUMI to make a bootable USB stick.
- Have used this same USB stick to install Ubuntu 18.04.1 desktop on a old dell I3 server machine and was able to get it installed eventually (But Junked the machine as I couldn't install a better add on video card)
- From what I've read, Once I get Ubuntu Installed, I should be able to update to the latest versions of stuff to fix the issue.
