For the past couple of Ubuntu releases the live CD has always worked fine, however after installation I would always get a blank screen on startup. I could reboot the system by blindly CTRL + ALT + F1 and
sudo rebooting, so it's definitely the display/open source drivers.
To counter this, I have always had to boot into
safe graphics mode (or add
xforcevesa to the grub boot options) then install the proprietary AMD drivers. This solved the issue in the past, however now that Ubuntu 16.04 does not support the proprietary drivers, does anyone know of a way around this issue?
My laptop is a Lenovo Z575 with an AMD A6 APU. Most of the forum posts are not up to date enough for dealing with 16.04.
Any ideas? Thanks
