I've tried several Ubuntu versions to install in my laptop(hp pavilion 15-cb032). None of the installations worked except one (it was 18.10), I don't know why but it didn't recognize the wifi adapter so I uninstalled. When installing it always happens the same I follow all the installation process but when restarting after installing the screen freezes. I have to restart it pressing the button. Then when booting if I try to enter in ubuntu I can but it freezes if I try to log in. I don't know where the problem is can anyone help, please?

    If your laptop has a new Nvidia graphics card then you need to boot with nomodeset and then install the recommended Nvidia drivers. And this has nothing to do with WiFi. – user880592 Apr 8 '19 at 13:09
  • @marioabad I had the exact same with a brand new Asus. you'll probably have to compile the wifi driver from source like I did. can you give us the wifi model number or wifi standart it uses? the nomodset added to grub fix will solve your hanging reboot issue (which won't only happen on install). – tatsu Apr 8 '19 at 15:13
  • thanks for your help finally it was the graphic card i already changed the nomodeset thing on the grub and now it works. the issue with the wifi was with 18.10 version but now with the 16.04 it works fine – mario abad Apr 8 '19 at 15:43
