I am trying to install Ubuntu 18.04 on NUC-11PHKi7C from a bootable drive but I receive the following error and the system freezes:enter image description here

Is there a work around to solve this problem. I have seen that installing Ubuntu 20.04 on the NUC is fairly straightforward.

  • Why don't you try 20.04 then? Aug 24 at 17:06
  • I have dependencies for a sensor driver which is not released in 20.04 yet. So, I am forced to use 18.04 Aug 24 at 18:37
  • A release from 3 years before the hardware is asking for trouble. Aug 24 at 18:38

Since several other problems will occur concerning the NVIDIA driver after you solve this ACPI error (took me two days to find the way out), I will provide my complete solution.

  1. Instead of installing Ubuntu, select try Unbuntu without installing, and push E.

  2. Replace the "---" after splash with "nomodeset", and push F10. This step will solve the ACPI error.

  3. Download the drivers in the following link: https://www.nvidia.com/download/driverResults.aspx/179599/en-us Install the .run file (before the installation, you need to install gcc first)

  4. Do NOT restart the computer as recommended, otherwise, you will get a black screen and have to start from the first step again. Push the install Ubuntu 18.04 icon and start installing the OS to your Nuc. Remember to select installing the 3rd-party software.

I wish it works for you.
