December 4th, 2018, 09:36 AM
Recently I bought a new laptop, ASUS Vivo Book Pro M580GD. The laptop spec. is Core i7 (8750H) 2.2Gz (8th Gen) 16GB RAM with 16GB Optane 1TB HDD Nvidia GTX 1050 4GB Windows 10 Home Pre installed

But I'm Kubuntu lover, The problem is I can't install Kubuntu and any other linux OS to this laptop . When I try to install, the installer will freeze.

I use USB to install kubuntu, I try "quiet splash nomodeset" by pressing "e" key on booting the kubuntu.

I already Followup this tutorial https://peshmerge.io/ubuntu-installation-stuck-on-preparing-to-install-ubuntu-screen/

but, after that installer works, but I can't select the HDD drive on my laptop, it is showing only the USB pen drive as a HDD to install kubuntu.
Can anyone know how to install kubuntu, a laptop like this ??

Have you updated UEFI & SSD firmware?
Did you change from Intel SRT/RAID to AHCI, but install AHCI driver into Windows first if dual booting.

See Intel response that no performance difference between RAID & AHCI.
