I have an old recon laptop, Dell Latitude E5500. It fail to go through GDM to show the login screen. It happen boot on Live environment and on hard disk environment. Just get the whithe screen with error message saying, "Oh no! Something has gone wrong. A problem has occurred and the system can't recover. All extensions have been disabled as precaution." with a logout button at the bottom.

So, any idea what happen and how to work around it?

Do you have an Nvidia card? if so edit /etc/gdm/custom.conf and uncomment #WaylandEnable=false, if you do not have and Nvidia video card you can also try that to see if the issue is with Wayland and is so please fill a bug about it.
