Getting stuck after entering login details

Okay after adding acpi_osi=! acpi_osi="Windows 2009" it now starts succesfully.
A0lthough two problems remain:

a) I'm unable to execute the commands to set up the GPU.
b) After leaving the computer alone for some time, when it turns off the display, it gets stuck there forever and I have to force shut it down.

Next time try this workaround (old known issue)
Ctrl+Alt+F2 and then Ctrl+Alt+F7
Have you installed a system or are you talking about a Live ISO?

I am talking about the installed system. I was able to install the system following the steps I explained above.

Unfortunately, I tried Ctrl+Alt+F2 and then Ctrl+Alt+F7 when it gets stuck there but it didn't help.

Can you run one or all of these commands:

inxi -SGxxz
mhwd -li
mhwd
xrandr

Sure here it comes:

Try installing video-linux without auto

sudo mhwd -i pci video-linux

Okay, that ran through, but after restarting I'm stuck after login again.

which means your Xorg is fine. Something about your session is in trouble.
As a quick check you could try creating a new user and login with it, to see if it works.
Else you should check logs for some error

journalctl -b-1 -p 3
cat /var/log/Xorg.*.log
sudo cat /var/log/lightdm/*.log.old

and think of configuring PRIME

How can I access these files without being able to login?

Sorry?
How did you manage to get the previous reports?
In TTY, not in GUI.
The commands I suggested are aiming to the previous boot, so after a hard reboot, don't login to DM. Go to TTY and take the logs.

Hey, the other I had gotten, because I was able to get in by chance.

These logs now:

IMG_20180601_093350IMG_20180601_093438

The other log file didnt exist.

Install bumblebee and bbswitch

sudo pacman -Sy bumblebee bbswitch

Didn't help. During the installation I noticed this:
IMG_20180601_113048

After installation I tried to reboot and it got stuck at this:
IMG_20180601_113136

Have you enabled bumblebeed?
Well, this goes far from my skills. You are trying to do what mhwd automatically.
I still suggest to use the PRIME method as proposed many times.

Unfortunately, I can't even execute mhwd in general since it always gets stuck, so I can't setup either of the two options.

I'm able to boot to tty now after editing the boot options accordingly

Okay, I tried a few more things: I tried to install another Kernel.

Linux49 doesn't install, it gets stuck. Linux415 runs through sucessfully but on boot it doesn't even get close to login.

I was able to get the bumblebee service to run via systemctl succesfully, although the system doesnt run yet.

Besides that, mhwd in general does not work, mhwd-kernel works, mhwd all commands get stuck for ever.

This is EOL. Try 4.16 or 4.17.

Yay, 417 finally booted

Although, Nvidia is still not working.
