daily build of beaver Saturday Apr 14 wont boot on XPS 15

Asked by JSG on 2018-04-15

Daily beaver iso from 4/14 wont boot on Dell XPS 15 9560 with intel+nvidia card. Something about the SSD or maybe graphics. Can't tell because the font is so small on the laptop screen and flash quickly over and over... so fast I could not capture the text with a camera.

Any ideas what to try? The bios does not allow me to make choice between intel and nvidia, and all built-in diagnostics are fine. Was running 17.10 just fine.

Any ideas? I also tried Pop!OS and it would also not boot, possibly related to "Failed to connect to lvmetad" ? The system is down so cannot collect relevant info. Shots in the dark are welcome at this point.

I suggest you report a bug. Bionic is not ready and not stable.

Try booting an older kernel

Can you help with this problem?
