I don't understand Linux and Debian very well, I'm not much of a geek, but I support open source, so I wanted to use Ubuntu. I ran the installation, and came with an error talking about a callback and dump_stack+0x45, which I don't understand. Here was the error:

Do you see the Grub2 boot menu or does it crash without showing it?

This is some newer Intel CPU and Nvidia card I assume. In my case, I was able to boot Ubuntu Live CD/USB and install it. But on restart I would get stuck on black screen seeing same as you.

I had this issue when installing and NOT clicking on "Download updates while installing". Also check your BIOS /UEFI settings, if the machine is new, maybe it has UEFI Bios. Disable "Secure Boot" and set the boot mode to "Legacy".

After I changed this and reinstalled Ubuntu clean, the problem was solved.

Try it and report ;)
