I have a Dell XPS 15 9550 (the most recent model), and I was able to get through the install process with minimal issues (I had to ‘modprobe bcrmfmac’ to get WiFi, which is required for install, but that was the only caveat). Since this laptop has an NVMe SSD, I can’t use GRUB, so I installed with systemd, with a dedicated /boot partition separate from my Windows bootloader.
But I can’t boot into Antergos. There’s no specific error message, either. I just select “Antergos” from the bootloader, a few lines of text quickly flash on the screen, and then it goes to black, with a single white cursor. And that’s it, it just sits there.
Things I’ve tried:
Booting without “quiet” in an attempt to get some information, but I still get a black screen with just a cursor
Booting with “nomodeset,” nothing changes
Booting with “modprobe=bcrmfmac” (and I’m not even sure I’m using proper syntax here), no luck.
Is this type of boot issue known? Is there something I can do to fix it?
