Hi, everyone. I had been using Linux Mint for about 3 years and decided to move to Antergos after a mint update broke my system during finals. It really didn’t take long to fall in love with Antergos after playing around with it for an hour or two. Everything worked great until I went and installed the nvidia driver (my system is an MSI gt20 series laptop with an optimus card - Nvidia m770gtx/intel).
I was initially able to log in with the fallback lts kernel image, but no longer. I assumed the grub entry “gfxpayout=keep” may have something to do with the ACPI errors that cause my system to hang.
I have tried several combinations in grub to try getting back into the system to uninstall the nvidia packages. The furthest I can get when playing around with the grub config is the following, but then it hangs indefinitely:
I live in a very rural area, my internet is basically 90s slow and I would love to be able to login and fix this rather than reinstall (not to mention saving the wear and tear on my ssd drive).
