    Re: Ready to kick this laptop to the kurb!

    Boot mode - Legacy Support
    Boot Priority - Legacy First

    Did you not say you installed in UEFI mode?
    Also, which drive contains your Ubuntu installation - eMMC or NVME?

    Done this
    Boot mode - Legacy Support
    Boot Priority - Legacy First

    Also, moved NVME to boot first.

    I thought it had resolved it! As when F10'd it... then it booted straight into fast Ubuntu.

    Shut the machine down and started back up again... BANG! Straight into fast Ubuntu again.

    3rd time shutting down and starting back up again... FREEZE on the Lenovo screen again.

    Well, that's progressed somewhat?

    I would change the UEFI Boot mode and Boot priority to UEFI and see if there is another improvement.

    Also, did you run fsck from a live session after your earlier hard shutdown episode?

    Changed it back to UEFI Boot mode and it booted into fast Ubuntu.

    Shut down (properly)... loaded up again with GRUB. Pressed enter and BANG! straight into Ubuntu.

    Third Shutdown (properly)... loaded it up again with GRUB.. allowed the timer to go through and Frozen on the Splash Screen.

    Forth Time Shutdown (properly)... loaded it up again with GRUB... Pressed enter and Frozen on the Splash Screen.

    I will try a live USB and run fsck (If I can remember how)

    Re: Ready to kick this laptop to the kurb!

    Ran the following in Live CD Mode sudo fsck -p /dev/sda1

    It said there was differences but nothing it was going to fix automatically?

    Rebooted the installed version and BANG! Straight back to the Splash screen Freeze

    Re: Ready to kick this laptop to the kurb!

    If you have a UEFI installation, you must have a minimum of two partitions?

    Is sda1 your EFI System Partition?

    Can you run this command in the terminal and post the output between code tags:-
    Code:
    lsblk -e 7 -o name,size,type,fstype,fsuse%,fsavail,mountpoint

    Re: Ready to kick this laptop to the kurb!

    That looks like a 32GB eMMC disk with LVM.
    Also you have a swap partition where a regular installation of Ubuntu automatically creates a swapfile.

    Your earlier attempt at fsck with sda was acting on an incorrect/missing device.

    I have zero experience of using fsck with LVM but you can try this via a live session:-

    For your EFI partition
    Code:
    sudo fsck /dev/mmcblk0p1
    For your Ubuntu partition
    Code:
    sudo fsck /dev/mmcblk0p2
    Out of curiosity, why did you choose to install with this partition scheme?

    Re: Ready to kick this laptop to the kurb!

    Should there be so many partitions? Or should some of these be deleted?
