On a clean install of Ubuntu 17.10 I get a similar error. Installation
on new hard drive works without a glitch, and the "You must restart your
machine yada yada yada...' popup appears. I then click on the restart
button in the popup, the system begins the restart cycle, but goes to a
black screen with a blinking text cursor (no error message). No commands
work in this screen and I have to force shutdown. Then I restart the
machine, and to all appearances Ubuntu 17.10 is present and working...
but it makes me nervous.

I've tried a clean install on a different hard drive and get the same
results. Any ideas about what might be going on?

CPU = AMD FX-8350
Board = M5A78L-M/USB3
Memory =  Kingston HyperX FURY 16GB Kit (2x8GB) 1600MHz DDR3 CL10 DIMM
SSD = SanDisk SSD PLUS 120GB Solid State Drive - SDSSDA-120G-G27

Ubuntu 17.10.1 from :
installed on a USB stick for installation.

What am I doing wrong, or is this a known issue?
