I have browsed through many similar topics in numerous forums. I couldn’t find any satisfying solution so I have decided to post this problem here. I have following configuration: Hp pavilion 13 notebook, i3-5010 processor, 4 GB RAM, Windows 8.1 pre-installed (UEFI) and 1 TB hard-drive with GPT partition. Graphics processor is Intel HD 5500

I tried to install (dual boot) Ubuntu 14.0.4 LTS (also tried Ubuntu 15.10 with same error) on my system.

I performed following steps: 1.) Created a recovery point, shrink C drive and created a new volume. 2.) Created bootable usb (UEFI) 3.) Turn-off fast start-up 4.) Changed the UEFI boot order with highest priority set to USB drive

I am able to boot through usb into GNU-GRUB 2.02 Grub

Upon pressing ‘e’ (edit), I get the following screen edit

No matter what option I select, the screen turns black and gives no response [black-scr ][3]

**** I have tried disabling/enabling secure-boot, makes no difference in my case (I get a black screen either ways)tried to change set gfxpayload ( to text)**tried removing ‘quiet splash’ or adding ‘nomodeset’ after ‘quiet spalsh’

Problem still persists, any suggestions? Thanks in advance.
