I just got a new Lenovo ThinkStation P700 with Windows 7 Professional on it, and I would like very much to install Ubuntu on it.
I tried to install Ubuntu both 14.04 and 15.10, unsuccessfully.
First thing I did: update the BIOS to the last version. Still did not help.
With Ubuntu 15.10 I don't get any error, the monitor goes black and in power mode, and nothing happens. No 'acpi=off', 'nolapic', 'nomodeset' setting appears to help in anyway. Also, if I try those I get a kernel panic error...
My machine has an Intel Xeon E5-1620 v3 Processor (10MB Cache, 3.50GHz) and one grapihc card NVIDIA Quadro K620 2GB (DVI+DP).
Does anyone know how to fix this issue? Many thanks in advance :)
Now I will try with older versions...
Appears to be working with Ubuntu 13.04 and
acpi=off nolapic nomodeset options. I'll keep you posted.
