I boot from a PenDrive with Fedora 30. My purpose is to update from Fedora 29 which is working well. My Laptop is an Alienware Mx11R2 with Nvidia Hybrid Graphics. The Pendrive has been used successfully in two other prior installations.
Once the Laptop boots from the PenDrive, it never gets to the installation screen where you choose to install or test Live. The installation gets stuck at a black screen where I can see and use the mouse cursor.
The Laptop does not freeze but I have no options…
This issue does not happen in Fedora 29 where installation runs smooth until the end… and updates have never created issues.
Try adding nouveau.modeset=0 to your grub line on boot. My son had the same issue on intel/nvidia hybrid graphics and needed this. If that works there are some great web pages that show hot to setup hybrid graphics online like this one Fedora on Dell XPS 9360 and 9560 - Internet Staff
The only thing i needed to change from his site is “sudo systemctl disable nvidia-fallback” needed to be “sudo systemctl mask nvidia-fallback” disable only stop it from loading but allows other services to load if as a dependence. Masking it point it to a blank file so even if they load it, nothing happens.
I got it to work as stated: “Try adding nouveau.modeset=0 to your grub line on boot”. This made the difference… Later on I had to deal with getting Intel Drivers working but this made the difference. The Laptop is up and running Fedora 30.
There are still issues that have to do with Hybrid Graphics but I guess that in time all will work…
