It almost certainly is the combo of Intel and NVidia cards - I have regularly had this issue when trying out a Live USB or installing from a Live USB. The nouveau driver in the initramfs sometimes seems to have trouble working with the NVidia card, you can disable it during the boot to allow start-up and then decide how to handle the NVidia card once the system is running.

To disable at boot: Interrupt the boot menu, press E to edit the kernel line, linux16, and add the following to the end of the line: modprobe.blacklist=nouveau, Ctrl-X to continue the boot.

If you want, you can now locate and install the NVidia binary driver, but you should also permanently disable the nouveau driver by following this guide: . If you do this after installing the NVidia driver then it should get included in the initramfs file for boot time loading.
