Fixing Ubuntu Freezing at Boot Time

Last updated October 29, 2020 By Abhishek Prakash 282 Comments

This step-by-step tutorial shows you how to deal with Ubuntu freezing at the boot by installing proprietary NVIDIA drivers. The tutorial was performed on a newly installed Ubuntu system but it should be applicable otherwise as well.

The other day I bought an Acer Predator laptop (affiliate link) to test various Linux distribution. It’s a bulky, heavy built laptop which is in contrast to my liking of smaller, lightweight laptops like the awesome Dell XPS.

The reason why I opted for this gaming laptop even though I don’t game on PC is NVIDIA Graphics. Acer Predator Helios 300 comes with NVIDIA Geforce GTX 1050Ti.

NVIDIA is known for its poor compatibility with Linux. A number of It’s FOSS readers asked for my help with their NVIDIA laptops and I could do nothing because I didn’t have a system with NVIDIA graphics card.

So, when I decided to get a new dedicated device for testing Linux distributions, I opted for a laptop with NVIDIA graphics.

This laptop comes with Windows 10 installed on the 120 GB SSD and 1 TB of HDD for storing data. I dual booted Windows 10 with Ubuntu 18.04. The installation was quick, easy and painless.

I booted into Ubuntu. It was showing the familiar purple screen and then I noticed that it froze there. The mouse won’t move, I couldn’t type anything and nothing else could be done except turning off the device by holding the power button.

And it was the same story at the next login try. Ubuntu just gets stuck at the purple screen even before reaching the login screen.

Ubuntu Stuck At Boot

Sounds familiar? Let me show you how you can fix this problem of Ubuntu freezing at login.

Don’t use Ubuntu?

Please note that while this tutorial was performed with Ubuntu 18.04, this would also work on other Ubuntu-based distributions such as Linux Mint, elementary OS etc. I have confirmed it with Zorin OS.

Fix Ubuntu freezing at boot time because of graphics drivers

You can watch how to fix this issue in the following video.

Edit Grub Menu to fix Ubuntu freezing at login

You should see some sort of code like the one below. You should focus on the line that starts with Linux.

Editing grub to fix frozen boot issue with Ubuntu Linux

Step 2: Temporarily Modifying Linux kernel parameters in Grub

Remember, our problem is with the NVIDIA Graphics drivers. This incompatibility with open source version of NVIDIA drivers caused the issue so what we can do here is to disable these drivers.

Now, there are several ways you can try to disable these drivers. My favorite way is to disable all video/graphics card using nomodeset.

Just add the following text at the end of the line starting with Linux. You should be able to type normally. Just make sure that you are adding it at the end of the line.

Now your screen should look like this:

Disabling NVIDIA Open Source graphics drivers

Press Ctrl+X or F10 to save and exit. Now you’ll boot with the newly modified kernel parameters here.

So, what did we just do here? What’s that nomodeset thing? Let me explain it to you briefly.

Normally, the video/graphics card were used after the X or any other display server was started. In other words, when you logged in to your system and see graphical user interface.

But lately, the video mode settings were moved to the kernel. Among other benefits, it enables you to have a beautiful, high resolution boot splash screens.

If you add the nomodeset parameter to the kernel, it instructs the kernel to load the video/graphics drivers after the display server is started.

In other words, you disabled loading the graphics driver at this time and the conflict it was causing goes away. After you login to the system and see everything because the graphics card is loaded again.

Troubleshoot: Cannot boot even after using nomodeset?

If using nomodeset in the grub didn’t work and you can still not boot, try some other parameters instead of nomodeset.

Follow the same steps as mentioned above. While editing grub, add nouveau.noaccel=1 in place of nomodeset. Save and exit grub and see if you could boot now.

If even that doesn’t work, try adding noapic noacpi nosplash irqpoll instead of quiet splash in the grub.

Step 3: Make permanent changes in Grub (if you can boot and there is no issue with graphics)

In some cases, not using the graphics driver at all or switching to the open source driver may result in poor looking resolution. If that’s the case with you, try switching to proprietary driver as explained in alternate step 3 (next section).

Don’t be too happy yet just because you are able to login to your system now. What you did was temporary and the next time you boot into your system, your system will still freeze because it will still try to load the graphics drivers.

Does this mean you’ll always have to edit Kernel from the grub screen? Thankfully, the answer is no.

What you can do here to change the grub configuration so that the Linux kernel will not try to load the graphics driver before the display server.

To do that, open the terminal (use Ctrl+Alt+T shortcut) and then use the following command to open the grub configuration file in Gedit editor:

You’ll have to use your password to open this file. Once you have the text file opened, look for the line that contains: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT=»quiet splash» .

Change this line to: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT=»quiet splash nomodeset»

It should look something like this:

Edit Grub To Fix Ubuntu Boot Freeze

Save the file and update grub so that changes are taken into effect. Use this command:

Once it is complete, reboot your system and it should not freeze anymore.

Alternate Step 3: You can boot but graphics look weird? Update your system and install proprietary graphics drivers

If you don’t want to change the Grub config as mentioned in the previous step, alternatively, you can install additional drivers in Ubuntu for NVIDIA and AMD. Ubuntu won’t freeze at boot time while using these proprietary drivers.

In Ubuntu and many other distributions, you have an easy way to install proprietary drivers. Search for “Additional Drivers” in Ubuntu menu. In here, you may find additional graphics drivers for your system.

Install Nvidia Driver in Ubuntu

Click to expand the next section to see the detailed steps to install the additional drivers.

I am assuming that it’s your first login to a freshly installed system. This means you must update Ubuntu before you do anything else. Open a terminal using Ctrl+Alt+T keyboard shortcut in Ubuntu and use the following command:

You may try installing additional drivers in Ubuntu right after the completion of the above command but in my experience, you’ll have to restart your system before you could successfully install the new drivers. And when you restart, you’ll have to change the kernel parameter again the same way we did earlier.

After your system is updated and restarted, press Windows key to go to the menu and search for Software & Updates.

Search Software & Updates in GNOME Activity

Now go to the Additional Drivers tab and wait for a few seconds. Here you’ll see proprietary drivers available for your system. You should see NVIDIA in the list here.

Select the proprietary driver and click on Apply Changes.

Install Nvidia Driver in Ubuntu

It will take some time in the installation of the new drivers. If you have UEFI secure boot enabled on your system, you’ll be also asked to set a password. You can set it to anything that is easy to remember. I’ll show you its implications later in step 4.

Enable secure boot with Nvidia

Once the installation finishes, you’ll be asked to restart the system to take changes into effect.

Nvidia drivers installed successfully

Dealing with MOK (only for UEFI Secure Boot enabled devices)

If you were asked to setup a secure boot password, you’ll see a blue screen that says something about “MOK management”. It’s a complicated topic and I’ll try to explain it in simpler terms.

MOK (Machine Owner Key) is needed due to the secure boot feature that requires all kernel modules to be signed. Ubuntu does that for all the kernel modules that it ships in the ISO. Because you installed a new module (the additional driver) or made a change in the kernel modules, your secure system may treat it as an unwarranted/foreign change in your system and may refuse to boot.

Hence, you can either sign the kernel module on your own (telling your UEFI system not to panic because you made these changes) or you simply disable the secure boot.

Now that you know a little about secure boot and MOK, let’s see what to do at the next boot when you see the blue screen at the next boot.

If you select “Continue boot”, chances are that your system will boot like normal and you won’t have to do anything at all. But it’s possible that not all features of the new driver work correctly.

This is why, you should choose Enroll MOK.

MOK and UEFI secure boot in Linux

It will ask you to Continue in the next screen followed by asking a password. Use the password you had set while installing the additional drivers in the previous step. You’ll be asked to reboot now.

If you miss this blue screen of MOK or accidentally clicked Continue boot instead of Enroll MOK, don’t panic. Your main aim is to be able to boot into your system and you have successfully done that part by disabling the Nouveau graphics driver.

The worst case would be that your system switched to the integrated Intel graphics instead of the NVIDIA graphics. You can install the NVIDIA graphics drivers later at any point of time. Your priority is to boot into the system.

Once the new driver is installed, you’ll have to restart your system again. Don’t worry! Things should be better now and you won’t need to edit the kernel parameters anymore. You’ll be booting into Ubuntu straightaway.

Step 4: Enjoy Ubuntu Linux

I hope this tutorial helped you to fix the problem of Ubuntu freezing at the boot time and you were able to boot into your Ubuntu system.

Checking media presence при загрузке windows 10

I’ve reproduced the issue two times, the steps are as following:

1. disable the legacy bios mode.

2. install Windows 10 64-bit

3. install Ubuntu 15.10 or Debian 9 stretch di alpha4 (testing build)

4. reboot and select Windows 10

5. reboot in Windows 10

The NUC got soft bricked without able to escape following dead situation.

>>Checking Media Presence.

>>Start PXE over IPv6

(a few minute later) A bootable device has not been detected.

My BIOS had already been upgraded to latest version 2015.1130, so far I can do nothing but restore the BIOS to default setting. But even after that the box direct goes for PXE networking boot media and fails by ‘PXE-E53: No boot filename recevied’. Obviously, the SSD content is trashed.

I suggest you to verify which the current BIOS is in your NUC. Use BIOS version 0350 or newer. Then, get into the BIOS and enable UEFI and Legacy boot on Boot tab. Go to devices tab and enable USB Legacy.

Reinstall Windows® 10:

Restart the NUC and keep tapping F10, select UEFI:USB: name or model of Windows® 10 USB bootable drive.

Then, create a partition for Ubuntu using Windows® 10 Disk Management.

Thanks for your answer. But I wasn’t going to search workaround here because I’d found it myself. I’m just bringing up a repeatable defect under a common scenarios. i.e. UEFI ONLY with dual boot. Legacy BIOS mode is phasing out, disabling it totally isn’t a bad ideal, right? Let’s call Intel’s attention for its production quality. In this forum, I have seen a couple of cases of bricking NUC for various BIOS reasons.

It is possible to have a UEFI only dual-boot with Win 7 and Linux on the NUC. I have it on mine which is on the 246 bios.

-Legacy mode on in the BIOS

-Install Windows 7 first, leave empty unpartitioned space for Linux.

-Install Linux second into the empty unpartitioned space.

At this point you have a UEFI GRUB bootloader. You can now turn legacy mode off and Win 7 will boot in UEFI mode via the GRUB bootloader.

Note that if you mess around with your partitions after this, you will have to type in the mapping by hand in GRUB, I`ve done it. If you know what to type it`s fine but the first time can be alarming, so it is easier to know what partition sizes you want ahead of time.

Your approach works until you want to re-install the second OS, i.e. Linux. I’ve proved it would still destroy your entire SSD content if you ever switch the legacy mode off and then on before the reinstallation. So my lesson is never playing with that legacy option before Intel gives a fix.

Shelf_June What? No. You don’t have to change legacy on and off the second time around. Leave it off after the first time. Just delete the Linux partition (better if you delete it from within the Linux partition tool, but you can do it from Windows too since the assumption is you’ll be booting from a flash drive anyway). Legacy mode is only required the first time you are setting up the brand new drive and installing Windows 7 on it first, before Linux or anything else. After GRUB is installed in the bootloader and everything is in UEFI, you are good to go with deleting partitions. Tip: If you use linux heavily, set /home up as a separate partition.

Please follow Sunspark’s recommendations and let us know of the outcome.

Additionally, take into consideration the fact Dual-boot installation on Intel®NUC5i5RYK is not developed by Intel. When making a dual-boot installation, it is necessary to take into consideration any errors could be the cause of the failed boot specially on Linux* GRUB Boot-loader.

This might not be the right place to ask about it, but I have a NUC5i5RYK that will not boot. I installed on it Linux/Mint 17.3/Cinnnamon 2.8.6, and it worked fine until it was bricked after suspension (many posts here on that sad topic). I revived it by dis-assembly, pulling the cmos battery connector off, and re-assembly. Then I upgraded the BIOS to V. 353, and for a few days it worked OK. But now it behaves in an even stranger way: the blue power LED is on, but the TV screen that it is connected to (via HDMI) says: not connected. check the wires, etc. I tried booting it from a USB drive that will boot other computers, but it ignored it. I tried re-installing the latest version (V. 354) of the BIOS (long press on power button, F7), but that did not cure it.

I am at a loss. I bought 16 gb of RAM (from Crucial) and a 250 gb Samsung SSD for it, which will probably be lost if I returned the NUC to Intel.

Could anyone tell me how to get it to boot from the USB? If I managed to do that, I could re-install Mint on it, but it refuses to acknowledge the USB, even though the boot order in the BIOS tells it to first boot from a USB drive.

But, what causes the “Please insert the last disk of the multi-volume set and click ok to continue”? How to fix the error? If you are one of them who encounter the error, you must be confused.

Well, keep on reading, and you will find the answers.

What Causes “Please insert the last disk of the multi-volume set” Error?

The “Please insert the last disk of the multi-volume set” error is usually associated with external drives such as a USB flash drive.

If your USB flash drive or external devices was previously inserted into a Mac system, you are likely to encounter this error. When it is used on a Mac, Mac OSX creates some hidden files on FAT32 formatted drives. And among those files, the zip files on the drive are what seem to cause the error message when the external device is plugged on a Windows PC.

Besides, if there is something wrong with the USB controller on your PC, you could also get the “Please insert the last disk of the multi-volume set” error message.

After knowing the main reasons for “Please insert the last disk of the multi-volume set” error, you may wonder: how to remove the error from your PC? Is there a reliable solution to get rid of the error?

Well, after analyzing several posts on how to fix “Please insert the last disk of the multi-volume set and click OK to continue” error on a Windows PC, here I have summarized some top solutions that can successfully remove the error. if you don’t know how to fix the compressed (zipped) folders error, try the following solutions one by one.

Solution 1. Remove .Zip Folders on Your Drive

As mentioned before, the error message “Please insert the last disk of the multi-volume set” can be caused by the .zip folders in the external drive that is connected to your computer. After deleting those .zip folders, the error message disappears.

So, in this part, you can follow steps below to remove .zip folders on your drive. However, before that, you need to unhide some folders on your drive first, as those files may be hidden on your computer. So you won’t be able to find them directly.

Follow the steps below to learn how to show hidden files and folders on your drive first, and then delete those files with the .zip extension.

Step 1. Open File Explorer and click Options button on top menu bar in File Explorer.

Step 2. Then switch to the View tab in File Explorer Options window.

Step 3. Check the option Show hidden files, folders, and drives under Advanced settings.

Show hidden files, folders, and drives

Step 4. Click Apply and OK to show hidden files and folders.

Step 5. Then open up the external drive and check if there are any files that end with the .zip extension. If you find any this kind file, right-click on it and choose Delete to remove it from the drive.

Step 6. After deleting all the hidden folders that might cause the issue, reboot your computer and see if the “please insert the last disk of the multi-volume set” error returns when you open File Explorer next time.

This solution works for most people who come across the “Please insert the last disk of the multi-volume set and click OK to continue” error on their PC. However, if this doesn’t work for you, you’d better try the next solution.

Solution 2. Format the Drive

If you are unable to find .zip files on the USB drive or other external devices that cause the error, then formatting the drive is another good choice. By formatting the drive, it will remove everything on the drive including all the hidden files, which should fix the error.

How to format your drive? Well, you can utilize Windows built-in Disk Management.

Disk Management can help you perform some simple disk and partition operations like create partition, format partition, delete partition, change drive letter and so on. If you don’t know how to format your drive, you can follow the steps below to format partition with Disk Management.

The process is very simple. Here are the detailed steps.

Step 1. Right-click the Windows Start menu and select Run to open the Run dialog box. Then type diskmgmt.msc in the Run dialog box and hit Enter to get the main interface of Disk Management.

Step 2. On the main interface of Disk Management, choose the partition you want to format. Then right-click it to select Format from the pop-up menu.

format partition with Disk Management

Step 3. Specify the volume label, file system and allocation unit size by yourself and then click OK.

set file system and volume label

Step 4. Read the note which tells you that all the data on this drive will be removed. Make sure that you have backed up all the important files in this partition and click OK to continue.

Then Windows will start formatting your drive very quickly. After formatting, check if the compressed (zipped) folders please insert the last disk of the multi-volume error disappears.

Sometimes Windows Disk Management may fail to format your drive with error messages like the format did not complete successfully, Windows Was Unable to Complete the Format and so on.
