Ubuntu Gnme 16.04.3 gets stuck at boot on Dell XPS 15
I installed Ubuntu Gnome 16.04.3 on a new Dell XPS 15 (9560) with the following partitions replacing the Windows partition:
/boot: 2GB / : 65GB /home: 92GB swap: 16GB (RAM is 16GB) rest (~340GB) left unused to make an encrypted data partition with gnome-disks.
When booting up with the USB the it gets stuck at the Ubuntu Gnome logo. And once I was lucky to be able to install it it also kept getting stuck at the same place.
I turned off secure boot and UEFI. I tried combinations of these as well.
The weird thing is this doesn’t happen with Ubuntu Gnome 17 even though I installed it with UEFI enabled. Also, the grub menu includes entries for the Windows Boot Manager and System Stratup but those weren’t included when I installed 16.04.3
I haven’t found anything that answers my question. I think it’s a problem with the 16.04.3 release.
