    Good afternoon Beno93 !

    There have always been problems in Sense due to non-direct software support.

    In Linux it is possible to control power values and limits for the CPU.

    The "tendency" to freeze is actually due to the fact that those who do not understand or do not know Linux systems.

    If you are unfamiliar, I advise you to use the principle only in "live mode" and then perform an installation.

    If you really prefer to install, use an ISO x64, install in UEFi mode and just press the "E" key in the installation menu and next to the quiet splash, enter the nouveau.modeset = 0 command to disable the Nvidia card during installation.

    Thanks for the answer.

    I am familiar with Linux and use it several years as programmer, not as Admin and I used it on several laptops and PCs but only on predator I had an issue like freeze. For that reason, I thought that there is something specific which I need to do while installing or after installing Ubuntu.

    I don't enter the nouveau.modeset = 0. I will try to install again, and how can I set CPU power limit value equal to Max value of Predator sense?
