• Black screen after install...


    Hello…
    I attempted to install Antergos on an old MacBook Pro last night…
    I have been running the Solus on it for a while, and just thought it would be nice to try Antergos…
    All went well…It was a seamless and easy installation…
    But…When I rebooted all I got was a black screen…
    I’ve looked around the forum for some help…So far haven’t found what I might need or understand…
    Any help or leads to the appropriate help would be greatly appreciated…
    Thank you…
    Peace…
    Stuart

    Hi and welcome to Antergos. Sorry if I didn t unerstand it but did it boot to a black screen or it did not boot at all? I found an article in the wiki mentioning a fix in case it doesnt boot, by changing lightDM to gdm: :https://antergos.com/wiki/desktops/installing-antergos-on-a-macbook-pro-62-mid-2010-with-encrypted-hard-drive/
    In case you can boot but are not able to reach the login screen, open a tty screen (Ctrl=Alt+F2) and try this:
    sudo pacman -S gdm
    sudo systemctl disable lightdm
    sudo systemctl enable gdm
    sudo reboot

    Check this out, too:

    Just posted others information, not a Mac user myself
    Cheers

  • @gray49 Have you tried Boot with the flag, nomodeset.

  • @gray49 Some info about your video card could be useful. Can you share the output of the command

    lspci -vnn | grep '\''[030[02]]'
    
  • @anarch thanks!!! after several day finally found the solution
