I’ve just tried to install Qubes OS on a new HP Pavilion 15-ec1096nf laptop. My USB drive works (already installed Qubes 4.0.3 onto a desktop with it), and boots in the Pavilion, I can see Xen booting and logging for 3 seconds. Then the screen goes black.
Forever. (at least > 15 min)
I’ve tried other usb drives (I’ve also tried with a more recent Qubes 4.0.4 usb drive, same result), I can install OSes on the laptop, nothing wrong (currently a temporary standard ubuntu).
I’ve gone through the “Installation Troubleshooting”, I assume it’s not an UEFI problem, as the usb stick loads correctly. I was thinking about the Nvidia card.
As I previously gave up due to Nvidia gpu one year ago, though it does not seem to be insurmountable, I would really try to fix this to achieve installation.
I could not find in the Nvidia Troubleshooting guide what I should change (I found it deals with already installed systems, except maybe for “Lack of video output during Nvidia driver installation”, but it’s not exactly the case, I anyhow I don’t know where the “kernel command line” is).
Can somebody help me fix the installation, please?
