Symptoms

Users have encountered the following symptoms when trying to install Ubuntu on their Dell computers. These symptoms occur when using either the Dell OS recovery tool (if Ubuntu came preinstalled) or the standard version from Canonical  SLN308883_en_US__1iC_External_Link_BD_v1.
  • The Dell and Canonical diagnostics all pass.
  • The SSD is detected in the Basic Input/Output System (BIOS), which is set to Advanced Host Controller Interface (AHCI) with Secure Boot disabled.
  • The installation stops responding when reading from the ISO operating system install media.
  • This happens with all three methods 'Try Ubuntu without installing', 'Install Ubuntu' and 'OEM Install'.
  • Installing to a Hard Disk Drive (HDD) works on the same computer with no issues.
