@Kai-Heng Feng (kaihengfeng) It does not have an integrated GPU. I've tried several other GPUs.
I've done the installation with nomodeset kernel parameters and noapci and a few others. Got it to install, installed the GPU drivers, however it still wouldn't boot properly/consistently without parameters such as noapci. Unfortunately, adding noapci causes the system to only detect 1 CPU core. I'm going to try and get some more logs. I honestly feel this is some type of regression. @TJ (tj) So the information you posted about the certification from Dell is on 16.04.1. If I create a boot media with that version, the machine boots without problem, however 16.04.1 doesn't have new enough drivers to support the on board NIC card. As soon as I upgrade to 16.04.2+ things start breaking. I'm going to try and work on this today and see if I can produce some kernel logs. -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Kernel Packages, which is subscribed to linux in Ubuntu. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1812758 Title: Boot failure on Dell Precision 5820 with Intel Xeon W-2123 CPU Status in linux package in Ubuntu: Incomplete Bug description: So I'm trying to install Ubuntu 16.04.5 (happens on 18.04 as well) on a Dell Precision 5820 with a GTX 1080 in it. These machines are lease refreshes. I created a UEFI image of 16.04.5, selected "Install Ubuntu" and then starts throwing a bunch of error messages stating [33.192238] nouveau 0000:05:00.0: DRM: base-0: timeout repeating over and over again. It never gets past this. I tried the suggestions of adding "nomodeset" in grub when I'm booting. It progresses a little further but hangs at "failed to start Ubuntu Installation Service, please run journalctl to see what failed". I can't see what failed as I can't get a prompt since nothing is installed. I don't know where to go debug from here. My computer boots to a black screen, what options do I have to fix it? Graphics issues after/while installing Ubuntu 16.04/16.10 with NVIDIA graphics Ubuntu 16.04 Installation Issue Boots Into Black Screen or Freezes - Nouveau/Nvidia Driver issue 1080ti Ubuntu 16.04 installation blank screen Ubuntu 16.04 unable to boot with GTX 1080 etc. However, I tried Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS and did NOT have the issues with the video and was successfully able to install Ubuntu 16.04.1. Unfortunately, 16.04.1 didn't support the integrated Intel i219-LM network card. I tried 16.04.2, 16.04.3, 16.04.4 and they all exhibit the same behavior as 16.04.5 with the video. Just as a test, I installed 16.04.1, installed broadcom NIC (which was successfully detected), and upgraded from 16.04.1 --> 16.04.5 with apt-get and had no video issues after reboot (I didn't install the video drivers), in addition, after it was upgraded to 16.04.5 the Intel 219-LM drivers were added and would work. I have a workaround, but it's REALLY annoying. The kicker in this is that the Dell Precision 5810 worked 100% correctly. Put the USB boot drive in, select the drive in UEFI to boot and everything works out of the box. I'm working on gathering more logs of this issue and testing different kernel versions.
