After I installed debian to my PC, I keep getting stuck at boot.
I keep getting these errors:
Noveau unknown chipset (my GPU is gtx1080)
bleep error 2 no such file or directory /dev/sdb2 ( but debian is installed and booting from /dev/sdd)

Systemd-sysv-generator[288] Assertion 'hash < h->n_buckets' failed, function hash_scan(). aborting
Systems caught ABRT core dump failed

In recovery mode I get the same Assertion failed error

Hi, do you have any live Linux media you can boot your computer with, such as a Debian DVD?

If so, please use it to boot the computer with, then run the following command in a terminal and copy and paste the output into a post here:
sudo parted -l
