Hey guys,

I have fedora 27 xfce spin. I installed using EFI.

After install reboot, I see teh grub menu, i see the loading services (the list oft hings being loaded up in text ), i see the plymouth/fedora logo loading, and then for a second the graphical env loads and then turns black. I cant do ctrl+f2.

i tried doing a chroot from the live media, doing fnd update and even installing nvidia drivers, but it all gets down to the same problem.

any ideas?

I'm not familiar with xfce, but ctrl+alt+F3 will bring up a console with gnome. Additional consoles can be switched to, as ctlr+alt+F4, etc. ctrl+alt+F1 takes you back to the graphical desktop, and ctrl+alt+F2 brings up the graphical login screen. If you can get to a console, and grab the output from "inxi -Fxmz" and post it as per:

maybe your hardware specs will help find the problem.
