Ok, I tried this and now it get stuck on reached target Graphical Interface. As per attached.

Ok it reached the Graphical interface, so i guess here is the problem newest gpu driver.

Can you switch to another TTY with CTRL + ALT + F1/F2/F3 ?

I would rather advice to install it with Manjaro Architect… The Desktop ISOs with the newest driver don’t work on all Systems, and many especially laptops need workarounds with newer kernels.

After while being here… i must admit: 70% of failed boots of Boot disks are because of laptops.

yes, I can go into a command prompt

Can you type?

journalctl -b -0


journalctl -b -0 --reverse

or if there is a Xorg log:

cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | less

Maybe there is a hint?

Ok, what does this say in English -:slight_smile:image

Ok i see now the problem. It looks similar to this one:

But it was a local installation and he fixed it by reinstalling the nvidia drivers. Something is wrong with the config :confused:
Or the configs for the drivers have on this ISO :100: a bug which effect on your system.

Since it is a rolling release, a installation with Architect is recommend.

Could you share your hardware here, just for the record when you are on Ubuntu?

inxi -Fazy

Thank you :slight_smile:

OK, Thanks for your help.

I pesonally think it is a graphic device problem. As with almost all other distro’s I use Nomodeset to boot and it does. Then on a fresh install I install the Nvidia driver and everything goes well.

I will try Installing the Architect way and get back to you. Should I be able to install the Nvidia (340.xx) on installation ?

You will need to install inxi on Ubuntu. It should be in the repo.
