I have problem with installing Ubuntu. I have downloaded Ubuntu 16.10 and installed it via a USB drive. I have Windows 10, and I want to install it beside Windows. When I choose install Ubuntu it stuck in Ubuntu logo and everything stops. The only way is turn off laptop manually. Is there any solution for this?

I selected try Ubuntu and it entered in Ubuntu but my laptop fan started work fast and it doesn't stop.


  • Have switched off secure boot in the BIOS. – George Udosen Jan 2 '17 at 16:55
  • What's your computer's firmware? UEFI, or csma, ensure that you install Your ubuntu with the same firmware you installed your windows 10. And furthermore, switch off secure boot. – shaddyshad Jan 2 '17 at 17:34

I have solved the problem:):)

  1. Update the bios.
    Download the latest BIOS, I uses the BIOS 300. https://www.asus.com/Notebooks/VivoBook-Pro-N552VX/HelpDesk_Manual/ https://www.asus.com/se/support/Download/3/837/0/1/BiXix0ldv4rQc6sc/45/ To update the BIOS:

    1. Verify the Notebook PC’s exact model then download the latest BIOS file for your model from the ASUS website.
    2. Save a copy of the downloaded BIOS file to a flash disk drive.
    3. Connect your flash disk drive to your Notebook PC.
    4. Restart your Notebook PC then press during POST.
    5. From the BIOS menu, select Advanced > Start Easy Flash, then press enter
    6. Locate your downloaded BIOS file in the flash disk drive then press enter
    7. After the BIOS update process, select Exit > Restore Defaults to restore the system to its default settings.
  2. Enter the bios and disable fast boot, save and exit bios

  3. Install the Ubuntu 16.10
  4. Set acpi_osi=! in GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT
    • Open a terminal
    • Open up /etc/default/grub, you'll need root privs to edit.
    • Goto the line:
    • and add the parameters
    • GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet acpi_osi=!"
    • Save.
    • sudo grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg
    • Reboot And now to works!!
