I want to install Ubuntu 16.04.02 alongside Windows 10. I shrinked the space, writed the ubuntu.iso on usb with rufus ( i tried alternative tools also) and reboot the computer. When I select the Try Ubuntu or Install Ubuntu option it freezing this screen.

It fills and refills once and stays.

How can I install Ubuntu alongside Windows 10?

my system:

i7 6700hq 2.6 mhz nvidia gtx950m 20gb 2133 mhz ddr4 ram

  • First you need to read and understand this: help.ubuntu.com/community/UEFI . Then, at the Grub menu with the "Try Ubuntu..." option selected, press <kbd>e</kbd> to edit the entry and add nomodeset after or instead of quiet splash. This parameter gives you low res video, enough to install. Repeat the editing after installing Ubuntu, install all updates and then search for "Additional drivers" in the dash and select & apply the recommended Nvidia drivers for your card. Reboot.

  • Thanks for your answer. I tried adding "nomodeset" but it asked me password. I entered id:ubuntu and password: - blank - and then it did nothing. What I write then? My PC has legacy BIOS. I bought it as freedos and firstly I installed Windows 10. Feb 27 '17 at 13:28
  • Disable Secure Boot and try again. It shouldn't ask for password.

  • Secure boot is already disabled but result is the same. Feb 27 '17 at 13:41
  • You're doing something (really) wrong then. Editing a Grub parameter does not and cannot ask for password. Please get back to the UEFI link above, read it and understand it, and assure you're booting in UEFI mode.
