Public bug reported:

Beforehand, I'd like to apologize if I'm reporting something
inconsistent, but I believe that somehow what I'm reporting can be

I've been testing bionic Ubuntu since before the first alphas, so the
first bionic installation iso came out at "
/daily-live/" I've already downloaded, installed and used it (on my
computer (at my own risk, of course)).

The problem is that all this time I installed and removed a lot of
things so that my ubuntu got a bit messy. So I decided to take advantage
of the beta2 release to perform a fresh re-installation.

The problem is that I have been trying this with the "isos" available at
""; from 2018-04-04, 2018-04-07 and
today, 2018-04 -08 ... and, in all cases, after burning the pendrive and
start the installation process, as soon as the system finishes loading
the graphical installation interface (be it "try ubuntu without
installing" or "Install ubuntu") , it freezes, leaving only the mouse
pointer working. I have to turn off the computer on the button to be
able to reboot.

My computer is a dell inspiron 7000 series gaming notebook with the
following configuration of video cards:

$ lspci -k | grep -A 2 -i "VGA"
00: 02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Device 591b (rev 04)
Subsystem: Dell Device 0798
Kernel driver in use: i915
01: 00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GP107M [GeForce GTX 1050 
Ti Mobile] (rev a1)
Subsystem: Dell GP107M [GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Mobile]
Kernel driver in use: nvidia

This weekend I have read many articles from people who have been able to
install bionic beta2 normally, so I think my problem is related to my
hardware. So I decided to report this bug for informational purposes
