If after a fresh install you get stuck on the login page, you probably need to get rid of the "nosplash" option.

Do not check the box the automatic loggon during installation.
First start Ubuntu with your password
Move on Parameter, users, and check the box for the automatic login (after unlocking).
Reboot Ubuntu.
In GRUB, select advanced options for Ubuntu, then recovery mode.
Select the 'root' mode.
Write: sudo nano /etc/default/grub
Replace GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAUT="quiet splash" with GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAUT="quiet" (i.e. delete splash).
CTRL+X then Y then ENTER
Write, sudo update-grub
Write either reboot or exit then resume
