I've got new laptop and I've been trying to install Ubuntu dualboot alongside with Windows 10.

I'm in GRUB menu after boot USB where options are:

  • Try Ubuntu without installing
  • Install Ubuntu
  • OEM install
  • Check disc for defects

Whatever I choose I get a black screen after it.

I tried lot of stuff while I was searching for a solution. In UEFI I set SATA to AHCI, turned off Secure Boot and Fast Boot.

I tried edit the command from GRUB replacing quiet splash with nomodeset, nvidia.modeset=0 or nouveau.modeset=0. Nothing helped.

I used Ubuntu on my old laptop and everything works just fine. I also tried to boot from the USB drive from another PC and it works. So there is no problem in the USB media.

I've got new Asus ZenBook Pro 14 UX480

  • CPU Intel Core i7 8565U Whiskey Lake
  • GPU Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Max-Q

Thanks for any advice!

  • Make sure you're booting in UEFI mode then add nomodeset. This is all you need to run a live session (and install) with a generic video mode. Later you need to boot with the same parameter and install Nvidia drivers. This assumes the media you're booting is working fine. – GabrielaGarcia Apr 29 at 12:55
