Using the mini.iso of Ubuntu 16.04 LTS on a Intel NUC NUC5CPYH (most current UEFI update), the installation runs smoothly. But after the restart at the end of the installation, the NUC hangs at

/dev/sda1: clean, 291272/4292608 files, 480345/18174432 blocks

Update: After removing 'quiet' from the boot options, I can see that boot hangs on "Starting Show Plymouth Boot Screen...torage."

Nothing ever happens. What's the problem here?

  • I can't remember which version exactly, but sometimes, ubuntu does not ask for login on the first tty. Try to switch to another tty (CTRL+ALT+F2..F7). – pim Aug 23 '17 at 6:47
  • Unfortunately, I can't. Nothing happens when pressing any key, including the combination for switching TTY. – Peter Sachens Aug 23 '17 at 7:24
  • Have you tried to remove quiet from the command line? perhaps a useful info could show up, or booting in recovery-mode? Have you got some other partition in your /etc/fstab? – pim Aug 23 '17 at 7:52
  • No, to be honest, until now I've never needed to look at Grub. Tonight I wanted to try to remove the quiet. /etc/fstab only contains the standard installation's partitions: The ESP (it's an UEFI install), the root partition (ext4) and a swap partition. – Peter Sachens Aug 23 '17 at 7:58
