Elementary OS – Black Screen and Blank Desktop error

This is personal note regarding installing ElementaryOS from USB which lead to Black Screen during installation which later after installation booted into a Blank desktop enviroment without any icons or taskbar.

  1. Create USB Linux install using YUMI – Multiboot USB Creator - [LINK]
  2. Boot up via USB
  3. At Elementary OS menu, select TAB to edit the command line. remove "quiet" and replace with "nomodeset"
  4. Proceed with normal installation

  6. Login using the credential created during installation

    # cp /etc/default/grub /etc/default/grub.bak
    # nano /etc/default/grub

  7. Add “nomodeset” to GRUBCMDLINELINUX_DEFAULT so it looks like this:

    GRUBDEFAULT=0
    GRUBHIDDENTIMEOUT=0
    GRUBHIDDENTIMEOUTQUIET=true
    GRUBTIMEOUT=5
    GRUBDISTRIBUTOR=lsb_release -i -s 2> /dev/null || echo Debian
    GRUBCMDLINELINUXDEFAULT=“quiet splash nomodeset
