I have installed Ubuntu several times on my old notebook and everything always worked fine. Now I have a new one:
- Schenker H507 (CLEVO P65-67RSRP) with G-Sync Display
- Intel Core i7 6700HQ
- Intel HD 530
- NVIDIA GTX 1070
- Crucial Balistix Sport 32GB DDR4 2400Mhz RAM
On this Notebook I have a SAMSUNG 960 Pro SSD with Windows 10 running in UEFI mode.
Now I wanted to install Ubuntu Desktop 16.04.1 LTS on my second SSD (SAMSUNG 850 Pro).
My Problem is that only if I turn on Discrete Mode in BIOS, which is for exclusively using the NVIDIA GTX 1070 graphics and shutting off Intel HD 530, I can boot into Ubuntu and install it.
I already tried many several solutions provided on Ask Ubuntu, but they all did not work for me. With HD 530 activated either I got a black screen or stuck at loading screen or a flickering screen.
I can install Ubuntu in Legacy Mode with both graphics cards activated, but I can not convert Ubuntu Legacy into UEFI mode.
lshw output of display in Legacy Mode:

Can someone help me please? I also tried Ubuntu 16.10. Currently I have Ubuntu installed in UEFI mode with only GTX 1070 activated. I do not want to turn off HD 530 every time I boot Ubuntu.
