I'm currently trying to install the Xfce-Edition on an IdeaPad Z585 with an AMD A6-4400M APU.
Whenever I try to boot into Manjaro from the Live-USB GRUB-Menu I get a black screen and the Laptop heats up until it shuts itself off.
Disabling UEFI Boot in BIOS and selecting the non-free drivers gets me a blinking Cursor on the upper left side. Any other combination (UEFI ON/OFF , free/non-free) I don't even get the blinking cursor.
Update: (for those unfortunate people from the future that may have to deal with this crappy laptop)
Since no matter what I tried I just couldn't get Manjaro to work I tried installing some other distros.
Hey at least it's Linux right.
All pretty much behave the same, except for one : MX-Linux
Only thing I needed to do was to set ACPI=off and it just worked.
My guess is because it uses a different init-system?
Don't really know but that's my best guess.
Just make sure to set some time aside for the install as the Live-USB worked... but for some reason was really really slow. we are talking 30mins just to get to the Desktop. Full install took about 3hours.
Once installed it works really well.
Only thing not working is the battery status display.
Didn't manage to get anything except MX-Linux to work.
