I've got a dual boot with Windows 10.
I installed the latest version of Ubuntu today and all went pretty well, rebooted a few times, no problem. Then I opened some of the other partitions/drives and they appeared on my desktop. I tried to delete them but was unable to. Googled how to get rid of them and it said to unmount them, that it wouldn't do any harm. So I did that, and it seems that that caused it to get stuck after the loading/splash screen.
I think I tried to re-mount via Advanced Options in the Grub menu but I have no clue if I did the right thing. I've never used Linux before.

It doesn't actually look like the issue is the partitions. Did a clean install, updated everything, installed Spotify, Discord, Atom and installed Ruby. Rebooted and it freezes all the same. I also added a 1920x1200 screen resolution using xrandr, but that's about everything.
