I guess my problem falls under this. I have a vaio sz 55, dual graphics card (nvidia 8400GS, and intel GM965 chipset/x3100), but I was running Antergos on intel only. After one update in May (I think, I could probably find the exact date I did system upgrade) I couldn’t start Antergos anymore on Intel graphics, even though live USB works really well. After several reinstallation attempts it’s still the same, get to the boot menu, after which some garbled screen appears and boot stops there with black screen. I have a hybrid drive on the computer so it all goes fast, and as far as I can tell the black screen may be hiding login screen, however, I cannot check this.
After struggling with Ubuntu for awhile, which seemed like an easy quick fix since I have some work deadlines, I reinstalled Antergos with nvidia proprietary drivers. Although they work fine (except for suspend) I would much more prefer running Antergos on intel graphics, it’s cooler and gives better run on battery.
Any suggestions or thoughts?
I also apologise if there is already a solution to this problem, I just couldn’t find it on the forums.
