Re: Notebook won't boot

well I reinstalled and updated level 1, 2 and half of 3. 2 or 3 at a time then reboot so I could work out which update was the problem. Then half way into level 3 I got bored and installed the rest and it's still working. How do I make the nomodeset permanently?

Re: Notebook won't boot

Yes I did apply the nomodeset parameter for install and first boot. I updated all levels. I'll install again tomorrow and be careful about the updates. It's strange that it boots with nomodeset from the usb but not the internal drive. The internal drive is a 32 GB eMMC Flash.
