I know this is a common issue, and I've already searched and tried all I've found, but nothing works. I've been trying to install Ubuntu 16.04 on my desktop but I can't seem to make it work. I've tried both with USB and DVD (both checked for intregrity) with no differences.
The USB/DVD boots, and it shows the UEFI selection screen (try Ubuntu, install, check disk, etc...). Whichever I choose, it goes straigth to a blank screen.
I've tried booting in BIOS (legacy) mode, and the only difference is I don't get the selection screen, just a brief purple screen with the little guy on the bottom, and then again, blank screen.
I've also tried with the following grub boot methods: nomodeset, nolapic, acpi=off, and different combinations of them. Some combinations shows some processes going on, but no luck, some of them go to a kernel panic.
