I'm running a fresh installation of Ubuntu 16.04. I installed it a two days ago, and it was working perfectly. Yesterday I rebooted my PC and booted into my other OS (Windows 10) finished up some work, and this morning I started my PC and booted into Ubuntu, but it doesn't load. It shows the ubuntu logo and the 5 dots underneath it, and the dots start changing color as it's loading, but freezes at the same point and it just hangs there.
My setup is two separate SSDs, one is for Windows 10 and the other for Ubuntu. No other drives were present in the system during the installation process. GRUB should be on the SSD which has Ubuntu.
Edit 1a: I tried adding the
nomodeset string while booting, no changes.
Edit 1b: One thing i might mention is that i my gnome shell was locked to a older version (think it was the default for 16.04lts) and i couldn't install anything from the
gnome-shell extension for firefox (it kept saying not GS is installed) so i did the following
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gnome3-team/gnome3 sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gnome3-team/gnome3-staging sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
