I just got my new laptop
Acer Aspire 7 A717-72G and of course Ubuntu is the first thing to set up on it but right now the mission is impossible ...
After the flash drive has boot up and an option
live CD or
Install is choosed it starts to load as usual and after a moment the Ubuntu GUI is shown but after approximately 10 seconds everything freeze up and only the cursor is working (cannot click anywhere).
I've changed all the options in the bios, disabled everything including the
secure boot and nothing ...
Notice that only
UEFI is supported, no legacy or something, this cannot be changed.
After everything I decided to try
windows 10 ... and it worked.
But I still cannot install Ubuntu, tried (16.04, 17, 18 (latest) ...)

Bootable flash drive:
Tested on another machine and it works correctly
Thanks to @oldfred, I successfully installed Ubuntu this way:
- Boot flash drive
- Choose install option
- After installation finished and PC has reboot you must open the GRUB loader with
Ubuntuand hit again
- Again replace
nomodesetto run the new system
F10(if i remember) to continue boot
- Now after your OS is loaded - open
software & update->
- Install NVIDIA latest driver
- Reboot PC
- Restore BIOS settings to default ... (if you want)
- That's all
