I have an
Alienware 17 R4, and as the title says, 16.04.2 is not usable on my laptop, but 16.04.1 and 16.04 are.
When I say "not usable", I mean it will boot installer, and complete the install. However, upon clicking the Reboot button after the install finishes, the window closes and then it just hangs in the installer with no window.
If I force restart, it boots normaly. However, after entering my password and clicking Login, it hangs.
I have tried Ubuntu Mate and Ubuntu Gnome; both have the same issue. Linux mint, however, works fine.
So, does it matter if I use an older revision of 16.04? Alternatively, is there a way to fix the issues I'm experiencing with the newer revisions?
NB: I have a SkyLake CPU
