I have a new laptop with Nvidia GTX 1070. After the grub menu and the splash screen the monitor goes black, but I can see the Ubuntu welcome sound.
I tied boot options like
forcevesa without any difference. However, it looks like there is a small chance that the monitor will go live. This allowed me to actually install the Ubuntu 16.10. And once I reached the login screen. After entering the password the screen freezed again.
I cannot get access to the virtual terminal (Ctrl + Alt + F1) either.
I want to try to install Nvidia proprietary drivers. Is there a way to boot to console only mode?
