Ubuntu: How do you install Ubuntu on an MSI Prestige PE60-6QE Laptop?



Question:

How could you possibly install Ubuntu on a MSI Prestige Laptop?, mine has some problems also when booting on Ubuntu, it freezes right after it starts loading the Ubuntu Logo, i had tried legacy and csm with legacy, but it still isn't working correctly, and also, does ubuntu work on a Realtek HD Sound Card? thanks for replying -EDIT-

And my Graphics Card is Nvidia Geforce 960M, Processor is Intel HQ6700 i7 Skylake Processor, so does ubuntu support the recent Intel Skylake Processors?

Solution:1

I have a MSI GE62 with i7-6700 Skylake and Nvidia GTX970M, and It finally works with ubuntu 16.04 so here are the different steps:

  1. BIOS: Enter the Bios by pressing the delete key.
    Choose UEFI-disable Secureboot and disable Fastboot(for Fastboot maybe its not obligatory)
    By installing Ubuntu 16.04 LTS: type the e key to access the Grub and it must look like that: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash nomodeset"
  2. Now Ubuntu 16.04 LTS installed you must change the GRUB: Please type in the terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T) :
    gksudo gedit /etc/default/grub

Then you will see a text editor that will open with the grub configuration file. I changed mine and my Grub configuration file looks like this :

# If you change this file, run 'update-grub' afterwards to update  # /boot/grub/grub.cfg.  # For full documentation of the options in this file, see:  #   info -f grub -n 'Simple configuration'  GRUB_DEFAULT=0  #GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT=0  GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT_QUIET=true  GRUB_TIMEOUT=10  GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR=`lsb_release -i -s 2> /dev/null || echo Debian`  GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash i915.modeset=1"  GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX=""  # Uncomment to enable BadRAM filtering, modify to suit your needs  # This works with Linux (no patch required) and with any kernel that obtains  # the memory map information from GRUB (GNU Mach, kernel of FreeBSD ...)  #GRUB_BADRAM="0x01234567,0xfefefefe,0x89abcdef,0xefefefef"  # Uncomment to disable graphical terminal (grub-pc only)  #GRUB_TERMINAL=console  # The resolution used on graphical terminal  # note that you can use only modes which your graphic card supports via VBE  # you can see them in real GRUB with the command `vbeinfo'  #GRUB_GFXMODE=640x480  # Uncomment if you don't want GRUB to pass "root=UUID=xxx" parameter to Linux  #GRUB_DISABLE_LINUX_UUID=true  # Uncomment to disable generation of recovery mode menu entries  #GRUB_DISABLE_RECOVERY="true"  # Uncomment to get a beep at grub start  #GRUB_INIT_TUNE="480 440 1"  
  1. now type: sudo update-grub
  2. update your kernel:

    sudo apt-add-repository -y ppa:teejee2008/ppa
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install ukuu

  3. Restart your computer by typing: sudo reboot
    Please note the only line I changed in the Grub configuration file is this one: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash i915.modeset=1"

  4. Please also note it may take a few reboots with some updates of Ubuntu so that your computer can be turned on and turned off normally
