2. Disable secure boot, change boot to uefi

Simply do it in BIOS.

3. Set sata operation to achi (safeboot minimal to change)

If you change SATA Operation Mode in computer BIOS after Windows OS installation, you will most likely get a Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) next time Windows boots.

To prevent this, you need to make sure the first boot after SATA Mode change is done in Safe Mode.

Start > Run type msconfig and press Enter

Change to Boot tab and under Boot option select Safe Mode and Minimal


Clock OK and restart computer

Now go into BIOS change the SATA Operation Mode from RAID to AHCI

Let Windows boot into Safe Mode

Start > Run type msconfig and press Enter

Change to Boot tab and under Boot option clear checkbox next to Safe Mode

Reboot computer

4. Changing ubuntu Boot Parameters Temporarily

You have very new graphics hardware, which is known to have compatibility issues with the open source nouveau drivers, especially when it comes to the NVIDIA GTX 10xx GPU adapter series.

Boot the Ubuntu installation media you have created and select 'Try Ubuntu without installing'. Press the E key and add the parameter nouveau.modeset=0 at the end of the linux line. (Note : Set a Space between the last character in the linux line and nouveau.modeset=0) Press the F10 key to boot into the Ubuntu Live desktop and start the installation of Ubuntu.

After the installation has finished, boot into BIOS and select Ubuntu as the default system to boot. Add the same parameter again when booting the freshly installed Ubuntu system for the first time. Now, before doing something else ... install the latest stable NVIDIA drivers from a virtual console.

When the login screen appears press : Ctrl+Alt+F1 Enter your user name and the password, then execute :

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:graphics-drivers/ppa
sudo apt update
sudo apt install nvidia-390 nvidia-prime
sudo reboot  

Additional information : Do not forget to disable Fast startup and Hibernation in Windows. In case that the USB still doesn't boot properly, use the parameter nomodeset instead of nouveau.modeset=0. If this also does not work : create a new and properly booting USB installation media as explained in chat and described in the answer to an earlier question.
