Kubuntu 18.04 LTS on Inspiron 15 7000 2 in 1

Hi, I recently bought an Inspiron 15 Series 7000, model is 7591. It comes with Windows 10.
I want to be able to run Kubuntu 18.04 in dual-boot for work reason. 

Once the kubuntu live-environment starts, it freezes on the startup screen, and the only action to do is turn off the computer. Since Dell and this laptop are considered Linux-approved, I wanted to know why it can't even load the live-enviroment. I didn't change the BIOS except for secure-boot.

Does anyone have any idea how to do it?

My Spec:

Intel® Core™ i7-10510U

NVIDIA® GeForce® MX250

SSD PCIe NVMe M.2 da 512 GB

Hello,

 

I had a similar issue just two days ago. It turns out your processor is too "new" for the current Ubuntu 18.04 kernel to "see" properly. You need to update to the 5.3 kernel, then Ubuntu can see the CPU and integrated GPU and you will boot just fine. After you boot just install the nvidia drivers and you're good to go.

The answer was provided here and has all the necessary links:

Good luck!
