I was following the UEFI guide to install Ubuntu on a new computer but after reaching the screen below

enter image description here

and selecting install, the screen just turns black and nothing happens. I already disabled fast boot, safe boot, Intel SRT, and disabled raid.


Could you try to add the following boot options? (press e when you see that screen and add):

acpi_backlight=vendor acpi_osi=Linux video.use_bios_initial_backlight=0

Because, maybe the monitor backlight is turned off.

Press F6 to bring up the options menu and turn on "nomodeset". More can be found explained about nomodeset here: What does `nomodeset` do
