Bug description:
  Ubuntu boots to blank screen when using Nvidia drivers (on a desktop
  with an unused Intel GPU).

  WORKAROUNDS (you only need one):

  * Uncomment #WaylandEnable=false in /etc/gdm3/custom.conf

  * Disable integrated graphics/GPU in your BIOS

  * Add 'nomodeset' to your kernel cmdline in /etc/default/grub and then
    run:  sudo update-initramfs
    and reboot.

  * Add a line to /usr/lib/udev/rules.d/61-gdm.rules:
    DRIVER=="nvidia", RUN+="/usr/lib/gdm3/gdm-disable-wayland"

  - Nvidia driver 375.66 (proprietary) does not work
  - Nvidia driver 384.47 (open source) does not work (from 
  - Nvidia drivers work with Ubuntu Gnome 17.04

  I am using Nvidia GTX 1080 and Intel i7-4790K
