    Default Leap15 Installation on Dell XPS15 9570 stalls at hardware detection

    I'am trying to install LEAP15.0 on a Dell XPS15 9570 with Intel 8750H Nvidia 1050TI and UHD Display. After disabling secure boot I'm able to boot the LEAP15 Installation USB thumb drive.
    This starts up and comes to the point where it says:

    >>> OpenSUSE 15 Installation program v5.1.11 (c) 1996-2018 SUSE LLC <<<
    Starting udev ...
    Loading Basic drivers.. ok
    Starting hardware detection...

    ... and there it hangs forever.
    Any ideas how to fix that problem ? Other than installing Tumbleweed, which seems to work

    If this hardware is very recent, you may need a newer kernel than the one that comes with Leap 15.0 . Your last line makes me think that for now TW would be the better option.

    My Problem with Tumbleweed is that it might be rolling faster than vmware , which I want to use on that device. Probably 4.20 won't be a problem when it is coming to Tumbleweed ( No known problems with 4.20-rc1 so far) . But who knows for 4.21/5.x ?

    Easy solution: Use btrfs, if this happens, return to last snapshot, lock kernel packages until VMware is done getting up to date.

    This might be too late, but just in case...
    I think I got the same machine as yours.
    I was able to boot from a usb stick after switching off secure boot in
    the bios (that automatically sets another option on (legacy rom, I think)
    At the installation menu I edited the boot command (pressing E) and
    adding "nomodeset" (do not include the quotation marks) to the end of the
    kernel boot command.

    That installed leap 15 fine.
    But then came all the updates and the machine did not boot anymore.
    Thinking that it was the nvidia driver (which I had installed with yast),
    I reinstalled without adding the nvidia repository. Updated the system
    and it did not boot either, so it is not a video driver issue.
    I suspect that this is some of the kernel updates that breaks it.

    Out of curiosity I tried the latest Kubuntu and installed fine, including
    the nvidia drivers, but I would like to run leap on it.
    Cheers
