I recently bought a new laptop and I would love to install Xubuntu 15.10 next to the current Windows 10 installation. The laptop I bought is a the ASUS ROG GL552VW-CN104T. The CPU of this laptop is the Intel Core i7-6700HQ and the GPU of this laptop is the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M. I think the problem is in support for the CPU, as it is a new Skylake processor.
I put xubuntu-15.10-desktop-amd64.iso on my USB drive and selected the boot device UEFI: KingstonDataTraveler 2.01.00, Partition 1. After this GRUB (version 2.02~beta2-29) would start up and give me the option to try, install, OEM install and check the disc. I chose e to edit the commands before booting.
By default it was set to the following:
setparams 'Try Xubuntu without installing' set gfxpayload=keep linux /casper/vmlinuz.efi file=/cdrom/preseed/xubuntu.seed boot=casper quiet splash --- initrd /casper/initrd.lz
I changed the third line to:
linux /casper/vmlinuz.efi file=/cdrom/preseed/xubuntu.seed boot=casper i915.preliminary_hw_support=1 ---
Still it would not boot up and show me the desktop.
I also changed the third line to:
linux /casper/vmlinuz.efi file=/cdrom/preseed/xubuntu.seed boot=casper nouveau.modeset=0 i915.preliminary_hw_support=1 ---
But still it would not boot up and show me the desktop.
I also tried using a DVD instead of a USB, but it had the same results. And I also tried adding the newest 4.3 kernel (downloaded from the kernel website of Ubuntu at /~kernel-ppa/mainline/v4.3-wily) to the Xubuntu live cd following this tutorial and LiveCDCustomization at the Ubuntu website, which was already pretty hard, but it would not boot up either (with or without the nomodeset and/or i915 parameters).
Here are a few photos to clarify my issue.
How can I boot Xubuntu 15.10 on this laptop and install it to the SSD next to Windows 10?
Edit: I already tried the solution in the 'duplicate', but this did not work for me.
