I have been attempting to install 18.04 on my new Lenovo D330. It has a Intel UHD Graphics 605.

While I can get to grub (try ubuntu/install ubuntu) I cannot get beyond that unless I add nomodeset to the boot option. If I don't do this, I get a black screen.

When I add nomodeset, I can get to the desktop, however it looks like this: https://imgur.com/CUOC1Z4

And when I try to swap to a tty after getting to the desktop, it is also unreadable: https://imgur.com/jgq8kKF

Is this card supported? How do I go about updating the driver/kernel without seeing the screen? I assume there's a way to turn off vid drivers so that the tty will work?

it work fine for my d330 using ubuntu 18.04 and kernel 4.15, what kernel are you using?

as for the display error with nomodeset you can fix it by adding gfxpayload=1200x1920 to your grub

  • Did you need to do anything funky to get the install looking fine? Were you using nomodeset etc? I assume you did a straight install using 18.04 installer? Unfortunately adding the gfxpayload option did not help. I was installing using 18.04 default download, so that's kernel 4.15 for myself as well. – Danni Uptlen yesterday
