I am so excited, entering the above into the grub menu after quiet splash… press enter and the hard drive fired up to a white screen with the Antergos logo and the 5 dots blinking across the bottom of the logo… after a minute approx, the screen drew some funky lines across the bottom and the white screen and logo went black. Hard drive was still purring strong and in about another minute I had a black mouse pointer up on the black screen, 20 or 30 seconds later and the screen went black no mouse cursor, and the hard drive shut down. I waited a bit and nothing.
So it seems that we are on to finding a solution to beat this pig into submission. Those commands told the kernel to ignore the fact that this pig has a radeon card not to panic… I thing we are one command shy of telling the kernel to show me some gui.
I have not gotten any other distro this far in the install process except Mint 17.3 as it still had the proper amd divers by default.
I now need someone of knowledge to help me find the missing link please.
