Installation of 18.04 stalls at grub2. Ubuntu runs well as trial version. Even put in a new 250GB ssd drive hoping that would solve the problem. Any advice on how to get past this?

    Welcome to Ask Ubuntu. BIOS/UEFI security can stop writing to the MBR (master-boot-record which stores grub stage 0) for some machines, so changing a setting in BIOS can fix this I've found. This however is hardware specific, and may do nothing for your actual cause; it's what I've found on some hardware, and your question reminded me of it instantly. – guiverc Jul 7 at 8:56
