Definitely was not user mint pw blank for me.
I updated the BIOS last week.
Elementary OS. - Managed to get that to boot from a USB via either nouveau.modeset=0 or xforcevesa I can't remember which now. Have installed it to HDD.
Am able to reboot in to it, but only via recovery and with the added parameter nouveau.modeset=0 (not using xforcevesa)
If it was my computer, I would be satisfied with doing this, however I can't give it back to my aunt with an instruction list that goes:
when it fails to turn on, push the reset button, now when it boots choose recovery, then type e, then type nouveau.modeset=0 then push ctrl x, now choose boot normally for next screen....
Is there any persistent fix for this?
Puppy: Did not boot at first. Attempted to add the nomodeset parameter, said command not recognised? Then it magically decided to boot.
Xubuntu - Did not boot [28.114182] BUG: soft lockup - CPU#0 stuck for 23s! [migration/0:8]
second time added nomodeset xforcevesa and it booted. Running of USB atm. Reluctant to install over the top of elementary yet as it appears to have the same problem.
