I am trying to install Ubuntu 16.04 or 18.04 on a Dell XPS 15 9560. For that I downloaded the desktop ISO and used
dd to put it on a USB drive. When booting the laptop I use
F10 to select to boot from USB. Then I get the GRUB selection screen:
- Try Ubuntu without installing
- Install Ubuntu
- OEM install
- Check disc for defects
I choose the first Try Ubuntu without installing. Now the purple loading splash appears but the system then freezes on both Ubuntu 16.04 and 18.04. Same happens if I select Install Ubuntu.
My system system settings are:
- Boot List Option: UEFI
- Enable Legacy Option ROMs: off
- Enable Attempt Legacy Boot: off
- Secure Boot: enabled
Now I read that there is a bug apparently with the graphics programs and that it may help to set
nouveau.setmode=0 at boot in Grub. So I guess I press
c soon as I se the four Grub options and then add the nouveau setting somewhere. But none of that worked sofar. I believe I need another setting somewhere.
Any idea what to set? Do I have to change something with the UEFI settings?
