@benisawesome192 Maybe some useful information here?
It usually is advised to use the non-UEFI option wherever possible.
However, I have tried both options and been able to get a working installation through both the UEFI & non-UEFI boot options.
The kernels & drivers are quite dependent on the machine you are working with and the type of hardware that is built in.
And yes, it rarely is a straight forward process, and does require some (lots at times… lol) amount of tweaking to get things working absolutely fine. It is worth the effort though at the end of the
Glad you got things working.
Would advise you to do a CloneZIlla of your fully working installation, so you have some kind of backup to jump back to when SHTF, which is very likely on a rolling distro :)
PS: I have tried many distros and each has worked with different levels of compatibility on my machine. I can safely state that with Antergos now I have everything working the way I want it to.
KAos was one distro that would not even boot into LiveCD session try what i might… go figure :)
I had a similar issue (of black screen with blinking cursor), although it did not show your hibernation error/warning.
It was caused by LightDM & replacing it with SDDM helps, if you are able to access TTY (Ctrl + Alt + F1)
Alternately you can do a fresh install & not choose ‘Auto Login’ if you had the first time.
Also try without installing additional video drivers.
Another option is to try booting with nomodeset as a kernel parameter

Display Managers are provided for a login screen, which protects your desktop from unauthorized users. Display Managers all provide their own styles, and different types of skin support. Their system resource requirements vary. Note: This installation guide is assuming you are already using the default Lightdm Display Manager. Remove LightDM Before installing a different Display Manager, you must first remove LightDm with the following command. sudo pacman -Rcns lightdm Now that Lightdm is removed, do not logout or restart till you installed your desired manager. Display Manager Options SDDM (Recommended for KDE): sudo pacman -S sddm-kcm sudo systemctl -f enable sddm GDM (Recommended for GNOME): sudo pacman -S gdm sudo systemctl -f enable gdm Reboot Your System After installing and enabling a display manager, reboot your login system. You should now see the newly installed display manager's login screen. If you have any trouble or want to know how to install a display manager that isn't listed on this page, post a new question on the Antergos Forum.
Also, is there a way to customize the screen I enter my password in during startup? I’m still playing around a lot so maybe I just haven’t got to it yet
Easy way is to remove LDM & install SDDM.
SDDM is the replacement for KDM, and SDDM is recommended for KDE.
Steps are easy, do with SU rights
pacman -Rcns lightdm
pacman -S sddm-kcm
systemctl -f enable sddm
Last night i was successfully able to install Antergos with KDE.
My machine is an Asus ROG GL552 VW, running on i7 with skylake support and Nvidia GeForce GTX 960M
I have 2 internal drives, a 128gb ssd (sdb) & 1tb sata (sda)
Dual boot with Win10, had to install with nomodeset as CNCHI would hang at DE selection otherwise. Not sure if i used the UEFI boot option or the non-UEFI mode
After installation i see the Antergos GRUB.
Choosing the first option, it immediately jumps to a black screen with the cursor blinking on the top left corner.
Ctrl+Alt+Del works to reboot.
Using systemd.unit=multi-user.target boots to CLI and i can login with my credentials.
How can i get in to the GUI (KDE) of Antergos?
Tried nomodeset & it has no effect.
Appreciate any assistance
