    Black screnn upon boot after fresh installation

    Hi, I decided to try out Fedora 27 and, as the title suggests, I am getting a black screen when I try to boot into it. I had no problems when I booted from my flash drive and during the installation itself. I've had similar issues with other distros in the past and they were all related to my laptop's dual GPU configuration - Asus N752VX with Nvidia GeForce GTX 950M and Intel Core i7-6700HQ. I tried adding "nomodeset" to the linuxefi line in GRUB but that didn't accomplish anything. Also, my laptop does not suppoer GPU switching/disabling from the BIOS.

    Re: Black screnn upon boot after fresh installation

    Adding the nomodeset parameter instructs the kernel to not load video drivers and use BIOS modes instead until X is loaded.

    I'd recommend Ctrl-Alt-F1 may get you to a command line boot - if hit at right time.

    If you are getting to the kernel command line (not grub2 settings) after the splash=quiet you can (where nomodeset is)
    you might be able to change runlevel.
    Once runlevel of boot-up gets changed then you can do everything to fully troubleshoot from command line/terminal /console mode . . .
    i think I have only needed to change runlevel from that kernel boot command, both before and after systemctl came in Fedora xx. (?)



    Experts here in the forums will chime in
