I’m on a ASUS GL752VW laptop trying to dual-boot ubuntu 16.04 with my windows 10 installed in LEGACY bios with a burned DVD. When I get to the (legacy) installer whatever the option I choose in the installer my computer just goes black screen for several seconds then restart. PS: I tried the acpi=off and it didn't solve my problem neither did my attempt to make another DVD.
The problem can be in NVIDIA. after the GRUB menu appears, select
Try Ubuntu and press
E . add
nouveau.modeset=0 in boot parameters (after word
splash). If it will not help, and you install 16.04.3, trying install 16.04.2 - in 16.04.3 problem with kernel and NVIDIA.
After installation, updated the system (and rebooted the PC)
After install Ubuntu remove (
nouveau and install prorietary driver NVIDIA.
To do this, restart the PC and select Ubuntu in GRUB, press
nouveau.modeset = 0 after quite splash and hit
When booted, exit the graphical mode (Ctrl + Alt + F1), enter your login and password, and uninstall the driver:
sudo apt-get purge nvidia* sudo reboot
Then install a proprietary driver from the NVIDIA site (in my opinion, now for the GTX960M was nvidia-387).
To do this, you need to restart the PC and add nouveau.modeset = 0 after quite splash, press F10.
Exit the graphical mode (Ctrl + Alt + F1) and use the following commands to install:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa: graphics-drivers / ppa sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install nvidia-387 sudo reboot
something like this
