I am unable to boot smoothly into a clean install of Lubuntu 15.04 32-bit, updated to the latest available releases.
Just after the motherboard finishes its thing and the PC proceeds towards boot, a blue Lubuntu logo shows up on the screen, but so briefly that I am not sure if I am imagining it. Promptly after that the screen goes black, and the monitor goes to standby. The system then (effectively) halts as after 2-3 minutes there are no signs of any progress.
I am then forced to do a hard reboot, which lands me into a static GRUB boot screen (does not autmatically progress to boot). I am here able to select
Ubuntu and the boot proceeds and completes, but it does not look pretty - the boot progress graphic is just ASCII art and is offset to the top left of the screen. Nevertheless, it boots.
So, what I would like to know is:
- What is causing a clean install of Lubuntu 15.04 32 bit to fail to boot?
- How do I fix/disable whatever is causing it to fail to boot? Is there a way to force Lubuntu into Grub, but have the Grub automatically progress to full boot?
