Black screen on i9-12900H laptop


I’m trying to install Clear Linux on a new laptop and I can never make the display work.

Laptop model: ASUS Scar 15 G533ZW-LN066, Intel Core i9-12900H, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti.

First try:
Install Clear Linux* OS Desktop from downloads section
After reboot (successful installation) the display would remain black.

Second try:
Follow this guide Blank screen when booting from USB - #4 by peteonrails
Same black screen after final reboot.

I was able to see this last error row after black screen:
“nvidiafb: unknown NV_ARCH”

If I restart with kernel param I can see this error in nvidia logs:
Fatal server error: Cannot run in framebuffer mode. Please specify busIDs for all framebuffer devices.

Can you please help me with this? Is this for Nvidia support?

I don’t even need the Nvidia board. I bought this laptop for software development purpose because it has the latest Intel processor.

Latest version from here Index of /releases/ has similar results.
I also tried to disable Nvidia and enable Intel integrated graphics without success.

Thank you!
