I'm very long time Debian based Linux user, I just decided to give Manjaro Gnome a try in VMWare and it worked well and looked nice so I decided to switch my main OS to Manjaro.
Unfortunately it just doesn't install. In the very same machine I have installed Mint, Ubuntu, Debian, all flavors and variants with no issues, but Manjaro just doesn't start the installer...
I have 2x2080TI + 2990wx + 128GB RAM in case that matters.
When I start the installer with non-free it gets stuck at "Session 1 for user Manjaro" and installer never starts.
When I start the installer with free it gets stuck at "TLP System Startup/Shutdown"
I played around boot flags like nouveau, i915, radeon etc. Flipped them to 1 and 0s and no combination worked.
I tried Manjaro 18.0.4 stable and 18.1.0-rc5 stable. Same result. In rc5 actually even the text is completely blurry, I just see things going up and down which are installer printing status updates on console, but can't read the text. In regular 18.0.4 I can actually see the text but doesn't start the installer.
Also I almost read every single thread in this forum related to Installer doesn't work, Installer stuck at TLP System Startup/Shutdown", so I don't think referencing other threads will help, but I'm open to all suggestions. Thanks in advance
