    You are showing a Maxwell nVidia card.
    Are you using nomodeset?

    If only Ubuntu you may not get grub. Have you installed in UEFI or BIOS boot mode?
    If BIOS hold shift key, if UEFI press Escape Key.
    But you probably need the fast boot (different than Windows fast start up) off in UEFI or you will not have time to press any keys during UEFI/BIOS screen. On my Asus I turned off fast boot until completely configured and then set to 3 sec, so I have time to do something if quick.

    At grub menu you can use e for edit, scroll to linux line and replace quiet splash with nomodeset.

    I don't know what else to do, but I can't install Ubuntu on my rig.
    Asus Z97-pro(wifi ac), Asus GTX960, M.2 disk(only Windows 8.1) and two SATA(one for data and one should be for LinuX).
    Same problem still.

    PLEASE, ANY SUGGESTIONS!

    Re: Ubuntu bual boot with Win 8.1 - M.2 disk - problem

    What version of Ubuntu?
    Have you changed the settings in UEFI to UEFI only boot.
    Are all drives gpt partitioned?
    Did you turn off fast boot in UEFI. On my Asus I turned it off totally while configuring system. Set fast boot off for hard reboot or full power off, and set warm boot or reboot to 3 second delay, just so I had a bit of time to get to UEFI or one time boot key.

    If not installing to drive seen as sda, you must use Something Else.

    Post this from terminal in live installer:

    sudo parted /dev/sda unit s print

    One user posted UEFI screens.

    I also have screenshots of my Asus Z97-AR. While not same model of Asus, UEFI screens should be similar.

    Hello oldfred,

    Finally, I manage to install Ubuntu on my computer. How? In order to install Ubuntu on my system I need to remove all my HD-s and DVD-ROM.

    My next question is: Why?

    What device is ATA7?

    I retired my 10 year old laptop and built a new system with M.2 drive. But since it also was Skylake I just used 16.04 even though then it was not yet released.

    Have you changed to use 16.04?
