I'm a novice Ubuntu user. Trying to install Ubuntu 18.04.03 on Intel coffee lake platform with NVIDIA RTX2080 (Notebook),system will hang and stop working. But this is not seen when using previous Ubuntu version 18.04.2 .
Any help would be hugely appreciated.

FreeZhuang; Hello

Nvidia recommends the 435 version driver for the RTX2080 card.
Bleeding edge - have you attempted to install a proprietary driver ?
Is this a fresh install - where the boot parameter "nomoseset" allows the boot process to continue ?

-a work in progress-

Hi Bashing-om,

Thank you for your reply.
 Is this a fresh install - where the boot parameter "nomodeset" allows the boot process to continue ?
 Free-> Yes, it can boot continue when set boot parameter "nomodeset".
               Same as ubuntu 19.04 new boot option “Install Ubuntu (safe graphics)”.
               I guess it's ubuntu inbox driver(nouveau) cause this issue.

If you can get in with nomodeset can you then install the nvidia driver and boot OK?
