Trying to boot
clear-32270-live-desktop from a USB drive I get the following errors:
and then I end up with a blank screen, no cursor, no reaction to any keyboard combination (Alt+F2, Ctrl+Alt+F3, Ctrl+Alt+F5,), and the monitor switching on and off indefinitely.
Ctrl+Alt+Del alone does not do anything but if I first press Ctrl+Alt+F3 and then Ctrl+Alt+Canc the system reboots as expected.
Not sure which one of the following two errors is the incriminating one:
ACPI BIOS Error (bug): Could not resolve symbol ... AE_NOT_FOUND [...] nvidiafb: cannot request PCI regions
noapic acpi=off, or
systemd.unit=multi-user.target to kernel parameters during boot did not change anything.
module_blacklist=nouveau I could log in from a terminal.
modprobe.blacklist=nvidiafb gets rid the
nvidiafb error but does not solve the problem.
In the BIOS: both secure boot and fast boot are disabled. I could not find a
AHCI/IDE mode in BIOS to set on or off: closest thing was a
XHCI Hand-off which enabled or disabled didn’t make any difference.
Can anyone suggest anything else I can try to be able to boot into Clear Linux GUI?
