I was trying to dual-boot ubuntu 18.04 using a bootable usb on my windows 10 pc. My pc uses uefi so made the usb into fat32 type. When I boot with my usb it shows alot of bugs like watchdog soft lockup cpu#x(x = some number). I am using acer nitro 5. Anyone know what this might be.
I googled alot and found a solution to this. You just have to go into the grub and press "E" while ubuntu is selected and then edit the file. On the line that starts with
linux just replace
quiet splash with
noapic noacpi nosplash irqpoll . Hope this works. It worked quiet well for me. After installing ubuntu or while opening it you should go to the boot/grub/grub.cfg file and do the same thing there. Or else you would have to do the same thing everytime the pc starts up.
Shutdown, boot from the computer, and immediately after the motherboard / computer manufacturer logo splash screen appears when the computer is booting, with BIOS, quickly press and hold the Shift key, which will bring up a GNU GRUB menu screen. With UEFI press (perhaps several times) the Esc key to get to the GNU GRUB menu screen. Sometimes the manufacturer's splash screen is a part of the Windows bootloader, so when you power up the machine it goes straight to the GNU GRUB menu screen, and then pressing Shift or Esc is unnecessary.
The Acer Nitro 5 has an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti GPU. When you are in the GRUB menu, press e to enter editing mode. This will bring up a GNU GRUB screen that looks like this:
Use the arrow keys to navigate when screen editing the above screen. Navigate to after the string on this screen that starts with
linux, and add
nouveau.modeset=0 to the end of the line. This change is only temporary — it will just be used once and GRUB won't remember it in the future. Press Ctrl+X or F10 to boot with the
nouveau.modeset=0 option that was added. If you make a mistake, press Esc to go back to the previous screen.
Your system should start. After that, open the terminal and run the following commands to install the proprietary graphics driver.
sudo ubuntu-drivers install sudo reboot
sudo ubuntu-drivers install installs drivers that are appropriate for automatic installation including their dependencies.
