Manjaro KDE 18.1 RC8 Cannot boot after install

Hi, guys...
Manjaro KDE 18.1 RC8 boot with no problems in live mode (PC i5 + GTX 1060)
Тhe installation runs smoothly, but when i restart end boot for first time tlp counter stand and nothing else happens (no tty, no boot screen, nothing)

have you select no-free or free drivers ?
can you with USB install manjaro returns

inxi -Fxxxza

The issue might be with Nvidia drivers not being properly installed. The issue is known and should be fixed with 18.1.0-rc9. Currently building the ISOs.

In live mode, I choose a non-free driver, and boot with no problems (nvidia control panel was worked)

I know, but the installation to the target system was broken. Therefore no drivers got installed. Either you try to go to a TTY and install the needed Nvidia drivers or you use rc9 when online.

OK, now in manjaro rc9 in live mode with nonfree driver stay here

With free driver boot normally, Тhe installation runs smoothly and when i restart end boot for first time just stay with black screen (no inscriptions, no tty, no boot)

can you with USB install manjaro , open a terminal

inxi -Fxxxza

I can use terminal only in live mode with free driver

That is weird. What does mhwd in a terminal say?

There was an issue with Nvidia drivers and mhwd. I had to reupload the ISOs. Please try again and verify the checksums.

OK with new rc9 iso boot successfully with nonfree driver, but the driver version is 418.88. The installation goes without problems, but when i reboot and boot for first time again stuck in black screen. then i remove "quiet" in kernel options and i see I/O error. I replace SSD with another and reinstalled again. Then manjaro finally booting successfully but with open source driver. Then i go to System Setting - hardware configuration and mark to install nvidia 435 driver but then after few seconds manjaro freeze and i nothing can to do (no tty). Of course then i tried to install another version on the driver (430) but the situation happen again.

On the ISO we have the 418xx driver and it also should install that without a problem. Due to live-session it works. Have to see how I can check it from my end.
