Hi to All,
I met a problem when installing Ubuntu 18.04 LTS 64b on an “old” LENOVO 3000 N200 basically designed and bought under windows XP ! !
As it was the first time I met such freezing with an Ubuntu distro, I tried the same distro on a DELL D620, same conclusion.
both machines are able to support Ubuntu 16.04 LTS 64b without any problem ! !
Therefore, I tried to update once installed 16.04LTS to 18.04 LTS. All went right till reboot.
Once both machines reboot, a few secs before reaching the login session panel, screens remain in the color of the background but without anything else. And stay stuck here for long, very long. No other option than turn off.
To be exhaustive, I made install both way : direct install or via Live session.
Via Live session I disabled all options of screen locking, energy saver, I downgrade the screen definition etc
I configured network connection properly before launching the install.
One time with third-party drivers tipped, the other time without tipping this option.
In both case, result is the same : freezing before login screen after reboot.
How is it possible that the install process is displayed all along the way without any default till rebooting and then… blackout ! On both machines ! !
What is missing between 16.04 LTS 64B and 18.04 LTS 64b for such “old” machines ?
On a third machine, another DELL D620, which has been running various distro of ubuntu till today, I rejected the upgrade proposal to move from 16.04 LTS 64B to 18.04 LTS 64B because of above. Hence this rejection, the update process is broken. I have tried a lot of proposals on forums but no result till now.
Thanks in advance.
PS : I use tag video without being sure it is clearly the origin. But it is a symptom for sure…
