Recently I decided to install Ubuntu onto my existing windows machine. The main reason for this, want to emulate games using my amd build. I have been using this youtube guide to install Linux: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6R8eXwaCthM&t
I have followed this guide to the letter beside one part, I made my swap area 6000mbs instead of 12000 as he suggested. Everything else I followed precisely. During partitioning, there was a display issue of some sort and I restarted my system into windows to make sure nothing bad happened, nothing changed. In order to proceed in the installer, I had to run it in safe mode. That was the only way to finish.
Now, while the OS works when in recovery mode, if I try to do a normal boot the display will go black after the boot menu logs me in. I'll see the main desktop for all of 5 seconds, then blank. No sounds, everything works fine in windows. I assume there is an issue in the display driver installed on Ubuntu? I have no idea how to fix this, not having ever used Linux before. I searched for my problem in around 1500 different ways with my specs and got no helpful results. Here are my system specifications:
AMD Radeon R9 390, Ryzen 5 1600, 16g 2400mhz ram, Gigabyte GA-A350M-Gaming 3 motherboard.
If you need any more information I will be monitoring this thread all day.
