For the past couple of days, I have been attempting to dual boot Windows and Antergos on my laptop (Dell XPS 15 9560). I’ve been able to get mint working but I decided I wanted a arch variant. However, I haven’t even been able to get into the live OS, which I am assuming is because of my dGPU (gtx 1050).
I have tried the Nvidia fallback option, however, I am greeted with a black screen with a console cursor in the upper left. The regular live boot displays a white splash screen with the Antergos logo and then freezes.
I’ve gone through a few threads on this forum and it seems this has been happening for a few years.
https://forum.antergos.com/topic/7715/nvidia-installation-driver-blinking-cursor (User has a similar model as me and similar problems) however the launch options didn’t seem to help
I’ve also tried using systemd.unit=multi-user.target and nomodeset to no avail.
Disabling the dGPU is not an option in Bios. Secureboot has been turned off. Bootable USB was created in Rufus on a Windows 10 host.
I was wondering if there are any easy fixes to disable the nouveau drivers or find a way to get into the live os so I can start installation.
Thank you :)
Feel free to let me know if anymore information is needed
