Kubuntu 20.04 USB boot disk fails

Bug Description

I have an HP ZBook 15 G3 with two graphic cards, an integrated Intel HD 530 and an NVIDIA Quadro M2000M (GM107GLM). Disk is SSD.

I intend to run Kubuntu with the Ubuntu Studio package, but could not install Kubuntu 20.04.1. Booting the computer with the USB image provided me with a blank black screen and whirring GPU fans. No interaction possible except forcing shutdown by pressing the power button for a long time.

Installing Ubuntu Studio 20.04.1 went fine.

It turns out this is because of a broken USB stick. Working while using Ubuntu Studio, breaking somewhere in the process of 'burning' Kubuntu. With a new USB, installation works as expected.

Changed in kubuntu-meta (Ubuntu):
status: New → Invalid

Not sure if 'invalid' or 'fix released' fits better, for now marking this as invalid.
