3 days… 3 days and nights trying to install Antergos but I stumble across a problem after a problem after another one.
Long story short, I have a GTX 970 and followed your dual booting guide and tried the UEFI installation but a black screen appears with very mashed up huge letters that I can’t read fills up the screen and freezes my PC. So here are my attempts:
Disabled security and fast startup
Tried the first UEFI options including no graphical installation and nvidia fallback, or something like that.
Added the following codes to the UEFI kernel line nouveau.modeset=0, nomodeset, modprobe.blacklist=nvidia-current
Removed quiet splash from the kernel line
Booted up as non UEFI and here is where things got interesting. I set the resolution to 1080p and those huge mashed up letters? They are not readable and it gives me nouveau timeout at the end when I remove quiet splash.
So I removed quiet splash and added nouveau.modeset=0. Still the same
I tried F3 then no KMS and it actually works but this is not UEFI installation so I can’t go through with it. I already installed antergos that way and it never boot up after that. Only windows would login so I learnt the only way to do it is through UEFI. So I had delete the partition it installed on.
At this point, If I compiled arch-linux itself. I would have been done by now but since I’m very new to linux. I have to stick with antergos. but I’m really losing my mind here. It seems like you guys had this issue for years on end and you never did anything about it.
So far I’m really frustrated with my first linux experience. Even signing up on this website gave me a suspicious email error and it took freaking 30 minutes to get it to work.
For the love of everything that is sane… Help me out here!
