After typing vga=791 nomodeset you're supposed to proceed with boot as described on the bottom of that screen. ESC abandons what you did, which

puts you on this screen.

I don't understand what you say here.

Instead of ESC after typing vga=791 nomodeset you should strike F10 or Ctrl-X to proceed with one boot that uses what you typed.

Normal. If I understand right, you already tried on normal and the result is first a green circle, then the display goes black and stays black. Is this correct? If yes, try the same thing, except instead of vga=791 and nomodeset, type plymouth.enable=0.

It shows something is crashing, causing LightDM to fail. Without LightDM, you get no GUI login manager. If when you get to that screen, does Ctrl-Alt-F3 change it to a text login prompt? If it does, login, do
Code:
pastebinit /var/log/Xorg.0.log
and paste the resulting URL here.

Would, most likely yes.
