As Asus ROG user i'm aware of ongoing struggle with Nvidia driver, which
is in conflict with Devian-based systems (
bin/pkgreport.cgi?pkg=nvidia-driver;dist=unstable  ).

I disable NVidia card editing boot config

(Restart your computer and enter BOIS (hold down f2)
Change boot priority to boot to your USB Stick first.
Save and reboot
When the grub boot loader menu is visible highlight “Try Ubuntu GNOME without
installing” (use your up and down arrows)
 Press “e” on your keyboard, this will allow you to edit the boot config.
nouveau.modeset=0 tpm_tis.interrupts=0 acpi_osi=Linux
i915.preliminary_hw_support=1 idle=nomwait

Run the command: sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get -y upgrade && sudo apt-get 
Remove all Nvidia installs(if any), run this command: 
sudo apt-get purge nvidia*
 Run the command: sudo apt-get install nvidia-361-updates nvidia-prime
 Reboot: sudo reboot

I used boot-repair software 
It was indispensable
Links, used in combination with each other. Nothing is like a silver bullet.
