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 : https://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop/contribute/?version=17.10.1&architecture=amd64 installed on a USB stick for installation. What am I doing wrong, or is this a known issue? -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Ubuntu Bugs, which is subscribed to Ubuntu. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1729437 Title: Ubuntu 17.10 hangs on reboot after installation To manage notifications about this bug go to: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+bug/1729437/+subscriptions -- ubuntu-bugs mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/ubuntu-bugs
