I have ASUS X540U laptop and I am trying to install Ubuntu 18.04LTS on it but every time the installer reach the detecting hardware stage the progress bar freeze and after couple of seconds it crashes. I did searched for solution on Google and found that I have to disable secure boot but it is already disabled. how to solve this problem Note: I am installing Ubuntu side by side windows 10
I have the same laptop!
In the black GRUB menu that shows briefly, when highlighting the installation option or the "try Ubuntu" option:
- press the
ekey (for edit)
- where it says "splash ..." put "splash pci=noaer ..."
ctrl+xkey combination to boot
After installation, open the Terminal application and type:
sudo dpkg-reconfigure grub-pc (or maybe grub-efi-amd64 ?)
There, press Enter and when it says "Linux default command line" you should add
pci=noaer, so it should end up like this:
quiet splash pci=noaer
If you don't do that quickly after installation, your hard disk will get full because of log messages in
