Having tried many attempts at tricks used for 16.04 and 17.04 from this and other forums I am about to give up.
Need some step by step instructions on how to get 18.04 on this thing.
EDIT: I found the solution
You must use the alternate installer version of Ubuntu Server.
Once you are at the "boot:" prompt type this:
install vga=off console=ttyS0,115200n8
