I've been trying to install Ubuntu for some time now, as a dual boot with Windows 10 on my XMG Schenker laptop. I have an Nvidia GTX 1060 graphics card, and i7 6700 CPU. I'm trying to install Ubuntu 16.10
The problem I'm experiencing is that I choose either "Install Ubuntu" or "Try Ubuntu without Installing" from the Bootable USB, I get a splash screen, and then the screen will flash once or twice, then freeze. The USB reading indicator will stop flashing, and the laptop's fans would slow down to minimum (0% CPU, I'm guessing).
At some point, I'll even hear the Ubuntu start-up sound (the one you get when getting to the login screen), and the keyboard is responsive (CAPS LOCK is working, I managed to restart by hitting the power button and navigating blindly with the keyboard)
I've seen the other posts like My computer boots to a black screen, what options do I have to fix it? and Graphics issues after/while installing Ubuntu 16.04/16.10 with NVIDIA graphics.
Here are my attempts:
- Initially, I was trying to install Ubuntu GNOME, and got the same effect.
nouveau.modeset=0in the kernel options had no effect.
quiet splashfrom the kernel options just made the splash screen disappear, and now I'm seeing a black screen, no terminal, no nothing.
- At no point did I manage to get to a TTYL. Ctrl + Alt + 1 (or 2 or 3) had no effect.
- Windows 10 boots just fine.
I'm lost. I'll be happy to provide more details upon request.
