Seems the issue related to Radeon graphic driver. You need to edit the Grub file.

Option-1: If Ubuntu is able to boot:

  1. sudo nano /etc/default/grub
  2. Change the line GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="" to GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="radeon.modeset=0" or, GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="nomodeset" and Save the file
  3. sudo update-grub && sudo systemctl reboot

Option-2: If Ubuntu is not able to boot:

  1. To edit Grub during the boot, do the following:
  2. Immediately after the BIOS splash screen during boot, press and hold the SHIFT button. This will display you grub containing a list of kernels and recovery options
  3. Press e to edit the kernel
  4. Find the line ending with quiet splash. Add your boot option before these key words - i.e. so the line looks like nomodeset quiet splash
  5. ctrl+x to boot

It should work now. Also remember, if you want to permanently use nomodeset, then, after boot, follow my Option-1.

I have that problem on hiveos.

I solve the problem reinstalling hiveos.

I reinstall hiveos remote, with this command: hive-replace --list

    As this is askubuntu and (at least for most stuff) only Ubuntu related problems are allowed to be asked here, I very much doubt he has the "hive-replace" as a command to his disposal. So I voted -1 to your answer.
