Just tried to install KDE Neon on my system but it stops at the black screen of boot.
I have captured a video of the boot issue here: https://vimeo.com/213190356#t=120s
* Lenovo ThinkCentre desktop
* Intel Core i7 6700
* 32GB RAM
* 2x Dell 27" displays connected over DisplayPort
* Built in Intel HD Graphics 530
FYI, Ubuntu 16.10, Fedora 25, Manjaro i3*, and Windows 10 all boot fine.
Any suggestions for fixing this issue?
* Manjaro i3 boots without any problem but with very low resolution and with mirrored display by default that can be fixed using xrandr, etc.

In Grub menu, try:
4) Boot Your entry
# Correction: Grub command Line
# An example
$ cat /boot/grub/grub.cfg | grep 'set.*gfx'
Now, press ESC and boot entry.
If this doesn't help: Edit the menu entry (press 'e') directly.

Can You watch Your own Vimeo video?
I can't. Not even with Firefox-all-extensions-disabled.
I tested other browsers…
Do You have to enable all cookies for Vimeo, or what?

I was able to watch the video without any problem on Firefox as well as Chromium.

I did see the video now. With Konqueror…
When You boot the kernel, the first kernel boot messages are visible.
But then, presumably, the kernel's video driver takes over,
and You get a blank screen.
I have a similar effect on my screen
(nvidia proprietary driver; the free and open nouveau driver doesn't do this):
The Linux Virtual Text Consoles go black
and their colors don't ever come back again.
But they are still working. You can blindly login on them
and do a reboot from there, for example.
After waiting, the graphical sddm login comes up, and
graphical desktop is fully functional.
If Your graphical desktop doesn't come up,
try a generic X video driver (fbdev).
And: Test it with only the primary display plugged in.
From Grub's command line, You can use 'cat'
to view (<disk>,<partition>)/var/log/Xorg.0.log
to see what went wrong with 'X'.

I found this topic when I had problems with installing KDE Neon on my desktop with Nvidia graphic card. The solution was in this post https://askubuntu.com/questions/162075/ ... -to-fix-it
This will allow you to boot in to installer after installation you will still not be able to boot in to installed system. To boot there you have to edit bootloader again and again add nomodeset plus change gfxmode to your resolution, example: 1920x1200x24
After booting to freshly installed system you have to install nvidia drivers. After installation of drivers all the issues with boot and resolutions will be solved.

I have similar problem (Notebook Erazer x7849 for reference) and can't get installer to work. I set gfxmode and change splash & quiet options with nomodeset, but installer hangs just on the beginning with secure boot off. What is interesting with secure boot on installer is working for a bit - it boots normally to a point when i see briefly "login" and then shows _ in left top of the screen and hangs.
Do you know what have i done wrong? I used stable dev distro and made usb pen with Universal-USB-Installer-188.8.131.52 on Win10.
I tried also
After dozens of reboots with different parameters I found that
