Ubuntu – Install Ubuntu 16.04 on Dell 15 7567


I just bought a Dell Inspiron 7567 and I am trying to install Ubuntu 14.04, 16.04, 17.04, …

I can see the grub menu, where I can select the options, but sometimes it crushes even before Ubuntu Live loads, others once it's loaded, and I cannot run any program and I just can reboot and start over again.

I've disabled secure boot, added nomodeset in the boot options, … but nothing works.

I don't think the problem is about the bootable USB, as I used several of them and I have the issue with all of them.

A bit more of info. The computer comes with windows 10 installed in a m.2 ssd. I bought a ssd drive where I plan to install Linux

It's getting kind of frustrating/disappointing, I start thinking that I will have to stay with Windows until there is a new linux version that does not have all this problems

Has anyone succeeded in installing Ubuntu in this same model? Could you please help me? Could you tell me the steps I have to follow?

Any help/advise will be much appreciated

Bounty Update

My 512 GB ssd failed to boot ubuntu installed via UEFI boot mode. my dell bios configuration looks like,

SATA: AHCI (without this setting, I cant see my ssd on ubuntu live usb)
secure boot: disabled
boot mode: UEFI

I managed to install ubuntu 16.04 via live uefi usb stick. But I can't boot from ssd. On the boot option, I tried creating a new boot menu which pointing to efi/ubuntu/shim64x.efi but no results. Still I'm getting the below error.

Product Name: Dell Inspiron 15 7000 Gaming

No bootable devices found

I also tried, chroot into the installed ubuntu from live usb and changed the kernal boot parameters like below,


but still I got the same boot error "No bootable devices found". Some says SSD won't support legacy ROMs that's why I'm sticking to UEFI.

I just setup my Dell 7567 with dual boot for Windows 10 and Ubuntu 16.04. My setup involves keeping windows 10 in the ssd( Tiny 128 GB version) and installing Ubuntu on the Mechanical Drive( 1 Tb). Following are the steps I followed.

  1. Disable Fast Boot and Hibernate on Windows 10.

  2. Advanced startup, Enter BIOS and disable Secure Boot.

  3. In the BIOS there should be an option called SATA Operation Mode, switch that to AHCI( DEfault is RAID). Please Note: If the setting is not available on your BIOS you might need a BIOS update.

  4. Setup your Ubuntu 16.04 usb boot drive using rufus. Note: Create using the 'MBR partiton scheme for BIOS or UEFI Computers' option.

  5. Go to advanced Start Up and boot from the created USB.

  6. Once installation starts go for 'Something Else' on the installation window. Make sure the grub(bootloader) is installed in the drive with your Windows installation. Create your root partition and swap area in the new drive(Follow Tutorials).

  7. Continue with installation and try to download third party updates while installing( That will solve any driver issues with the graphics card)

  8. Reboot and you are good to go.
