Installer fails on AMD Epyc with Nvidia GPU


I am trying to install Clear Linux Desktop on an AMD Epyc CPU with NVidia GPU card.
During boot the screen gets fuzzy and the machine freezes.
I have tried to blacklist the nvidia module, but the efect is just a blank screen.

Which NVIDIA card? I’m betting not supported by the opensource NVIDIA driver which is why you’re seeing this. In that case, you’ll have better luck installing using the server/TUI installer since it won’t attempt to load graphics.

The card is GTX 1660 . The server version has the same issue

Yeah, NV160 is not supported in the nouveau driver

When the installer is booting up, push e at the bootloader to edit the kernel boot cmdline and add modprobe.blacklist=nouveau to the end.
