I'm trying to install Ubuntu 16.04 in a brand new computer which already has Windows 10 running on it. The computer is a MSI GL62 6QF-632NL, with Intel Core i7-6700HQ and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M.
I reserved a portion of my Hard-drive as described here, disabled Windows fast start up, and booted using a device. My screen looks like this:
I clicked use a device, waited for the memory stick to boot, and after hitting Install Ubuntu or Try Ubuntu Without Installing my screen froze at the following purple 5 dots loading screen:
I tried with bootable USB-sticks created in Rufus (in Windows) and Startup Disk Creator (in Ubuntu) to no avail, so the problem must be in my system.
I checked the memory device and got the following warning:
[0.235565] ACPI: EC: Fail in evaluating the _REG object of EC device. Broke n bios is suspected [5.156922] nouveau 0000:01:00.0: priv: HUBO: 10ecco ffffffff (1b40822c)
Someone has a guess of what may be happening? Who is the likely culprit and how I can get Linux running on my computer?
I created a follow up to this question Unix & Linux users.
