Right now I'm trying to install Ubuntu 15.10 on an Asus GL552 that came with Windows 10 and has an NVidia 960M GPU.
I've disabled Secure Boot, Fast Boot, and enabled CSM in my BIOS, but when I boot to the flash drive and select either Try or Install Ubuntu, I see:
[ 0.043200] Ignoring BGRT: invalid status 0 (expected 1) [ 3.978792] nouveau E[ VBIOS][0000:01:00.0] 0xf152: unknown opcode 0x00 [ 3.978813] nouveau E[ DEVINIT][0000:01:00.0] init failed, -22 [ 3.978828] nouveau E[ DRM] failed to create 0x00000080, -22
After searching a little bit, I found that I should put nomodeset in the startup parameters, at which point I don't receive the nouveau errors, but the screen has been sitting at the same "Ignoring BGRT" message for over 15 minutes.
I also have dual hard drives, one an M.2 SSD and the other a SATA HDD. At this point I haven't even gotten to any install prompts as it doesn't go past the errors after Grub.
I've tried 14.04 LTS, however the screen just stays black and doesn't give any errors or makes any progress. How can I get past this point?
