Long time listener, first time caller... So, I am trying to make Manjaro work with my Dell XPS computer that I just purchased. The full specs can be seen here: https://www.dell.com/en-us/work/shop/dell-laptops-and-notebooks/new-xps-15/spd/xps-15-9570-laptop/cax15w10p1c1654p and I am having the toughest time getting this operating system working. I've tried everything it seems. Here's the list of things I have tried:
- Followed the guide here, no luck: https://gist.github.com/MeirBon/c99ae4e9e40f7e542361f646e4f637f5
- Tried to install Manjaro straight up booting into live with the nonfree drivers -- Black screen every time I try to login
- Tried to install Manjaro with Manjaro Architect with the nonfree drivers -- Again, black screen every time I try to login
Honestly I have installed and tried to login a solid 50 times so far with countless configurations.
I have tried adding countless kernel parameters like
acpi_rev_override=1 (which worked on my last Dell XPS to get things booted) and even the
acpi_osi stuff. Nothing seems to work here. I just get a black screen every time I try to login.
After some investigating I have found that
mhwd just simply freezes when booting into the command line from grub and trying to run it. This could be the issue but I am unsure how to resolve this. The most confusing part is that the live environment from USB works completely fine... Why wouldn't the install work??
Any guidance to help in the installation process would be amazing as I would love to use Manjaro on my new laptop. The kernel is 4.14 on all of these installations.
