I'm having trouble loading a live USB of Ubuntu 16.04.1 desktop.
I have an existing windows 10 install and when I run msinfo32 it reports BIOS mode as legacy.
When my bios splash screen I select the boot menu and I have two options for loading from the USB – one for UEFI and one without – I select the one without.
Initially I see a person and keyboard icon at the bottom of the screen briefly, followed by a blinking cursor and shortly afterwards a black screen. After a few seconds I heard a drum sound. The screen stays black after that.
My graphics card is an nvidia 1060.
Is this a known issue? Are there any different steps I can take?
Thanks for any advice.
edit – I have also tried the acpi = off, nolapic and nomodset flags. Now I get a "kernel panic" error.
