I have just started using the ASUS UX501VW as my development laptop. I am
running 16.04.1 on the 4.3.5-040305-generic kernel. I haven't tried anything
more than what I've read in these comments.
Laptop is running fine - with just a few little quirks (white noise on
headphones, numlock doesn't work, brightness buttons don't work).
I want to move over to an upstream kernel (4.6x probably) so we can get
more support in getting the little things working, but I don't know what
the next step should be. I tried installing kernel 4.6.0 and adding the
grub command, but no luck - still hangs after logging in. 4.3.5 is the
newest kernel I've been able to get working.
I also see that this issue was marked back to "incomplete" rather than
"confirmed". I'm not super able with Ubuntu, but I can follow
instructions just fine. What needs to happen to get a newer kernel
booting on this laptop?

Asus ZenBook UX501VW frequently hangs during boot under Ubuntu 16.04
Status in linux package in Ubuntu:
A fresh install of Ubuntu Gnome 16.04 on an Asus ZenBook UX501VW hangs
during boot, approximately 80% to 90% of the time... occasionally it
manages to complete the startup for no discrenable reason, at which
point the fan will run at full speed nonstop (very loud) until the
machine is powered down. Due to the information from
zenbook-ux501vw/>, I installed the wily 4.3.5 kernel (replacing 4.4.0)
which appears to work perfectly... no bootup hangs or odd fan
The hang occurs shortly after providing the disk decryption key (I
opted for full-disk encryption during installation). The issue occurs
frequently when booting Ubuntu Gnome from a flash drive using "try
before installation" mode, however, so I'm confident that it's not
actually encryption related.
I am *not* using any proprietary drivers (no nvidia, etc.).
