I have a problem booting up my fresh Ubuntu install. I messed around with this for a few days now, and can't figure it out or find a solution for it. Most likely it's my nvidia optimus driver problem but here's the run down:
When I try Ubuntu on my laptop, it works flawlessly. Doesn't refuse to boot. Then, I install the Ubuntu from a bootable usb I created. I tried reinstalling the usb multiple times and don't think that's the problem. Install goes well and asks me to restart the computer. That's when I run into this issue.
The computer goes through the bios screen (press f2 for BIOS... etc...). Screen goes black, then dimly lights up, then goes black and keeps cycling these two displays.
Now. I can get into Ubuntu if I press ESC a few times so it skips the boot selection (blue) screen, then I have to run my hand across the keyboard multiple time so that a blinking cursor appears and that's when I know after a few seconds the Ubuntu login screen will appear. Then Ubuntu works fine after that.
In the boot selection(after a single ESC press) there's two relevant options "ubuntu" and "1. my ssd drive". If i select 'ubuntu' the screen starts cycling the black and dimly lit phase. If I select the other option screen is perpetually dimly lit and takes no inputs.
I'm at a loss, and need help solving this issue :( ps. I'm a fairly new linex user.
