Currently able to boot the 17.0.2 pre-alpha with the following kernel boot options:
acpi_osi=! acpi_osi="Windows 2009" modprobe.blacklist=nouveau

Just downloaded the Manjaro 17.0.1 Gnome edition (4.9 Kernel) and have been unable to boot to the live installer environment on 2 different Dell Precision 5520 (2017) Kaby Lake systems. The previous gen Skylake based 5510's work very well.
I can reach single user & multi user targets when specifying them as a kernel boot option and then "startx" from from there leads to OS / X11 / Kernel / Kernel command line information being printed to screen before the system hangs without ability to switch to an alternate TTY.
Otherwise if I boot without specifying a non-graphical target it hangs at "[OK] Reached target Graphical Interface"
BIOS is up-to-date [latest 1.3.3] and I am using the left side USB port to avoid issues with the "powershare" function (also disabled in BIOS)
So far I have tried various kernel line options [some very blindly tbh] including:
Various acpi_os!= flags also
Honestly my biggest question is, how do I get more verbose output to the screen immediately after it says "[OK] reached traphical target" ? What is the best strategy for continuing troubleshooting on this?
FYI: (started with i3 community edition but had same issue)
