    my research into the issues shows this command may resolve your problem....

    Code:
    systemctl reboot --firmware-setup
    this seems to have worked for several others with similar hardware....

    good luck

    I entered that command, then the pc rebooted, and brought up a menu, f1 to enter bios, f2 to something, f3 etc.. I pressed enter to continue, as I didn't know what to do here, and it booted into Windows. I shutdown, then upon reboot, grub was gone, it just goes straight to windows now. How do I get grub back? I'm sure I can just google this one, but I don't want to mess anything up..

    So, I'm back to where I started lol. I restored Grub, and am now back to running Xubuntu. What was I supposed to do in the EFI menu?

    When I installed xubuntu alongside of W10, I disabled secure boot in UEFI first as instructed here: https://www.howtogeek.com/175641/how...h-secure-boot/

    Also worth mentioning, I disabled fast boot too, I think.. This is the guide I followed while installing xubuntu: https://itsfoss.com/install-ubuntu-1...ows-8-81-uefi/

    Is your system freeze issue resolved? I faced the same issue with a fresh installation of Ubuntu 18.04.1. The experiments I did so far show that the problem happens only with iPhone USB tethering. The details of my experiments can be found in the following thread

    Thanks

    Still freezing, I connect to the internet via wifi. I asked this question on askunbuntu too, still no luck.
