#StackBounty: #16.04 won't boot, dev/sda1: clean, files, blocks

Bounty: 200

my laptop (Thinkpad t450, Ubuntu 16.04) won’t boot anymore, it stays stuck on

/dev/sda1: clean,  nnn/nnn files, nnn/nnn blocks

I have tried to $ sudo apt-get purge nvidia* and fsck at boot, but it doesn’t help.

I managed to boot in the previous kernel though.
The new kernel that won’t boot is: Linux 4.4.0-174-generic

Can you help please ?


Edit: $ dpkg -l | awk '!/^rc/ && / linux-(c|g|h|i|lo|m|si|t)/{print $1,$2,$3,$4 | "sort -k3 | column -t"}' gives :

Edit: $ lspci -v | grep "VGA controller"

00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation HD Graphics 5500 (rev 09) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])

and $ glxinfo|egrep "OpenGL vendor|OpenGL renderer*"

OpenGL vendor string: Intel Open Source Technology Center
OpenGL renderer string: Mesa DRI Intel(R) HD Graphics 5500 (Broadwell GT2)
