Hi, the latest BIOS for your ASUS G752VM is version 306 - 2017/08/01 - probably it is the first thing you should do.
Currently I have only Solus (for me much better and faster then Ubuntu) installed in my ASUS G752VS... during the last year I installed few times Ubuntu alongside Windows without any problem:
erase completely your hard drive, reset BIOS defaults,
set SATA to AHCI, disable legacy boot mode, disable fast boot and secure boot (probably you need to delete all secure boot keys), make GPT partition table, create one NTFS partition (size 50% of hard drive) and install Windows in UEFI mode, fully update your Windows;
reset BIOS defaults,
set SATA to AHCI, disable legacy boot mode, disable fast boot and secure boot (probably you need to delete all secure boot keys), manually create partitions or install Ubuntu automatically in UEFI mode alongside Windows;
inside BIOS change boot order and set Ubuntu as a primary OS.

I assume that you installed the latest BIOS 306?
This is my BIOS:
Intel Virtualization Technology - enabled;
Intel AES-NI: enabled;
Network stack: disabled;
Legacy USB support: enabled;
USB mass storage driver support: enabled;
Launch CSM: disabled;
Secure boot: disabled;
Secure boot control: disabled;
I/O interface security
Card reader: disabled.
In my opinion, Ubuntu 16.04 is too old and 17.10 is a big mess - not to mention other things, first of all check your situation regarding the following:
In Ubuntu, you should use Xorg session instead of a Wayland session and Nvidia driver instead of Nouveau.
You can try to install via PPA the latest mainline kernel (currently 4.14.11), the latest Mesa and Nvidia drivers:
Alternatively, you can erase your hard drive once again and enjoy in Solus with or without Windows (do you really need it?). Unlike Ubuntu, Solus is a rolling distro and except touchpad problem, it works almost flawlessly in my Asus G752VS laptop.
