I've done everything exactly the same and i't still doesn't workhi
i think if you install linux you cant leave it
because you love it
for your problem you must download ubuntu from the ubuntu site
if you've done it now you must bootile it "correctly"
format a flash
download and use yumi (it works in windows) to bootile your flash to linux
then boot your flash (change in bios)
and choose ubuntu and after that choose install ubuntu
and when press install just wait and let it install ubuntu
i hope i can help you
I tried to disable secure boot but I can't it's gray. So I found somewere that if you set admin pass it would let me but still nothingAre you using a CD or DVD or a usb stick to install Ubuntu?
Did you disable secure boot and did you go into the BIOS and make the cdrom or the usb stick the first choice in the boot menu?
Give more details please. I've done everything exactly the same and it still doesn't work is vague.
That might just solve OP problem.Perhaps this will help.
This tutorial shows you how to deal with Ubuntu freezing at the boot splash screen by installing proprietary NVIDIA drivers. Works for other Linux as well.itsfoss.com
I found you machine here:HP OMEN 15-ce006nm
I can relate as I have a pet peeve with installers and bootloader wars.As a former GIS Tech, I put up with nVidia because it was the best for the job when I was using it. It remains a great grahics card.
I can begin to understand Linus's frustration over their proprietarianism (word?) but, frankly, Broadcom gave me much more of a headache while using Debian in the early days of my Linux experience than nVidia ever did.
Everyone has a pet peeve, it seems. NVidia is not one of mine. M$ is!
@OP -- here's your driver
