    Macbook Pro Install Fails


    Adding modprobe.blacklist-nouveau, I have the exact same error.
    Passing nouveau.modeset=0, I have a blinking _ with no text.
    Adding nouveau.modeset=o nomodeset and systemd.unit=multi-user.target allows me to boot to tty1. When I tried running startx from there, I got

    Fatal server error:
                        (EE) no screens found(EE) 
                                                  (EE)
                                                      Please consult the X.Org Foundation support
    

    along with some other information, after which it wrote

    xinit: giving up
    xinit: unable to connect to X server: Connection refused
    xinit: server error
    

    .

    Hi, try also nouveau.blacklist=1 in your kernel line.

    Passing only nouveau.blacklist=1, the computer fails to boot, writing

    [FAILED] Failed to start Light Display Manager.
    See 'systemctl status lightdm.service' for details.
             Starting Pamac...
    [  OK  ] Started Update man-db cache.
    [  OK  ] Started Pamac.
    _
    

    , with _ blinking in regular intervals. Here is the output of journalctl, the xorg log, and the lightdm log.

    @RandomUser33 The main idea remains the same as already suggested - exclude nouveau from being used.

    Try to instruct the kernel to do so in a slightly different form:

    modprobe.blacklist=nouveau
    

    Sometimes the parameter works in one form, sometimes in another.

    Do you have managed to install Antergos on yout MBP?
    Check the wiki page that i have put up:
    “Install dual boot MacOS X & Antergos on a MacBookPro 9,1”, Search for that title in the Wiki because Akismet blocks the post with URL.

    In the latest Antergos iso there is no CD/DVD option anymore, choose the first one of the list, that works now!
    I will change the wiki.
