• Installation on ASUS GL752VL Laptop - Freezing and Failing


    I’ve been trying to install Antergos on this machine for AGES, but to no avail.

    The regular iso either hangs at a white screen or the next screen with the Antergos installation Plymouth.

    On NVIDIA Fallback mode, I get to the greeter, but it’s all black and white and I can’t see what I’m typing.

    The minimal failed as well, but I can’t remember at which point.

    What do I need to do to get this installed? I believe it has something to do with NVIDIA Optimus.

  • Did you try with USB? I usually burn the USB with the software rufus and allways work fine. Also, did you checked the .iso integrity after download?

  • I did indeed try with USB- in fact, that was the only way I tried. I have not checked the integrity yet. I’ll do that soon - I need to redownload the iso, as there’s been two versions since.

  • if there are new images it’s probably to have less bugs (if was a bug).
    Good luck.
