I am trying to install Ubuntu 15.10 on a Dell Precision M6800 notebook. I am not having any success.
I downloaded the iso and burned it to a DVD. When I boot from the DVD there is a message that flashes very quickly that I cannot see what it is because it flashes so fast. I am then presented with the GRUB screen and installation options.
I once got some success by selecting "Try Ubuntu without installing" but when the desktop is displayed the computer hangs and requires a hard reset. The result is also not consistent as sometimes the process just hangs on the purple Ubuntu install screen where the dots are highlighted during install.
When I select "Install Ubuntu" there is a quick flash of the following messages:
6. 159825] mmc0: Unknown controller version (3). You may experience problems 7. 133570] usb 3-1.6: device descriptor read/64, error -32 9. 069387] nouveau E[ PGRAPH][0000:01:00.0] wait for idle timeout
The Ubuntu install screen then comes up with the word Ubuntu in the middle and the 5 dots highlighted below that. The process stops after this and does not go any further.
I would appreciate assistance with getting the installation done. I have some knowledge about Ubuntu but I am not an advanced user. I got Ubuntu installations right on other systems but not on this one.
