I attempted to install the nvidia 390 drivers straight after a fresh install of Ubuntu Server Bionic Beaver but got stuck at reboot.My exact steps:
Turn off secure boot in BIOS.
Boot from USB ISO, install (delete all existing partitions) & reboot
sudo apt update
sudo apt upgrade
sudo apt install ubuntu-desktop --no-install-recommends
shutdown -r now
Nvidia driver intallation:
Once on desktop,
Open Ubuntu Software&Update GUI
Tick allow proprietary drivers
Install of nvidia-driver-390
Issue and bug report:
At reboot, I am stuck at the console just before X is supposed to start.
Had to CTRL-SHIFT-F2 to login and run nvidia-bug-report.sh
