    Guys, this is my 1st try at Linux and tried to install Linux Mint 19.1 ytd and it went into a boot loop at BIOS on my ThinkPad X230. I tried installing it on my MSata SSD and without disabling anything like UEFI and chose erase and clean install. Installation went well and smooth but it would not simply boot. It went into a boot loop at the BIOS Screen indefinitely!

    Does it have nvidia GPU? Does it boot to black screen after booting?

    I'm using the ATI Switchable Graphics and it doesn't get past the 1st Lenovo Boot Screen
