    Welcome to the forums.

    So you get grub menu & Windows works.

    Then Boot-Repair seems to have fixed grub's part of booting and now you are into loading kernel and devices. Often video issue or other boot parameter required for some of the new hardware.

    Also in UEFI/BIOS have you turned quick boot off?

    What video chip do you have?
    Have you tried recovery mode from advanced grub menu?

    Hi

    My graphics card is intel HD 4000

    The quick boot is turned off

    I had tried with Recovery mode and also adding nomodset in the boot

    It was giving Kernel panic - not syncing: Fatal Machine Check

    It reboots later on gets back grub menu

    A fresh installtion of linux works fine but dual booting seems to be a issue

    will try with acpi=off option and let u know

    This tried with this link also

    I have seen it said that the Intel graphics just work.

    Some other boot options for Intel even though different vendor.

    Asus i3 with Intel graphics,
    "acpi_osi=Linux"
    "video=1280x1024-24@75" or whatever native resolution is

    In recovery mode it does not have splash quiet so you should see the loading process. Does it show anything errorring out or having issues.

    Same entries are in log files. From liveCD/Flash you can mount your install and look at log files. I look at dmesg but there are many log files in /var/log.

    Change example sda6 to your Ubuntu partition

    sudo mount /dev/sda6 /mnt
    gksudo gedit /mnt/var/log/dmesg


    Look for outright errors, long boot time spacing, or repeated tries and then it just gives up type entries.
