Thread: Opensuse 42.3 und LinuxMint 18.3 fail to install on Lenovo MIX 320-10ICR

    Default Opensuse 42.3 und LinuxMint 18.3 fail to install on Lenovo MIX 320-10ICR

    My new Lenovo MIIX 320-10ICR came with Windows 10. As on my other computers I wanted to install Linux as a dual boot.
    After seeing the installation options (in Suse and Mint) the screen freezes or turns black respectively.

    The Graphic Card is Intel HD Graphic Card VGA-20.19.15.4352.
    I tried to find a Linux Driver and even contacted Intel but did not get an answer.

    Does somebody have a solution?

    Hi
    At the grub screen press e to edit and on the line starting with linux (or linuxefi) add;
    Code:
    nomodeset i915.modeset=1
    Press F10 to boot and see if that helps.

    Thanks for your your reply malcolmlewis,

    I followed your advice and the screen again freezes at the echo "Loading Kernel ... Loading initial ramdisk".
    The USB install medium keeps blinking busily - so something is still happening, but not on my screen!

    My suspicion is that it's a graphic driver problem.

    Hi
    I'm sure it is a graphics driver. I would suggest downloading a Tumbleweed live release and try that;
    http://download.opensuse.org/tumbleweed/iso/

    The other option maybe to try a net install of 42.3 rather than the DVD.

    Ran into the same problem recently with an install on someone else's laptop that I do not have access to right now.

    Not certain, but I think I may have solved it simply with adding:
    Code:
    nomodeset
    and not the additional i915 command.

    Try it.
