I have a Dell's laptop (Model: DELL XPS 13 7390 2-in-1 laptop, Tag:F4V82Z2, with Intel's 10-gen CPU i7-1065G7, IceLake) that originally shipped with Windows 10 and I would like to dual boot it with Ubuntu 18.04.3. However, the boot always hangs and the laptop starts to be really hot.
What I tried:
I downloaded Ubuntu 18.04.3 (and also Ubuntu 19.04) from https://ubuntu.com/download/desktop Using Rufus-3.8 I made a USB boot drive (File system:Large FAT, Partition scheme: MBR).
- I read online that USB-2 are not supported by Dell so I tried both USB-2 and USB-3 drives.
- I ran the BIOS hardware check scan - Passed.
From within windows:
- Just to make sure, I updated Windows to have the latest updates.
- I downloaded Dell's update utility and ensure that I have the latest updates.
- I updated the BIOS with the latest firmware since Oct 3, 2019
- I ensured that Microsoft Bit Locker is suspended (although the disk is fully encrypted).
- I shrank the C drive to un-allocate 200Gb for the Ubuntu boot.
- I ensured that windows fast startup is disabled
- I tried to use secure boot enabled/disabled modes.
- I tried switching the SATA configurations from RAID to ACHI
- I ensured that only UEFI boot is enabled
After booting from the USB, the UBUNTU grab is opened and I choose "try ubuntu". Then, I am getting an error related to the ACPI tables. I edited the grab with the following configurations but the boot always hangs:
nosplash debug i915.nomodeset=0 max_cstate=1 acpi=off i915.nomodeset=0 max_cstate=1 acpi=off
nomodeset=0 max_cstate=1 acpi=off
What can I do next?
