    Lightbulb suggestion for installing with Intel & nVidia graphics on a recent PC - Asus G20

    This is a suggestion for installing OpenSUSE Tumbleweed (as of April 2019) on a recent PC (Asus G20) with
    both Intel & nVidia (GTX970) graphics controllers:

    - if your installation of OpenSUSE crashes, hangs, or fails with an unexpected error, try adding these options
    to the kernel boot line (press 'e' in the Grub boot screen):
    textmode=1 nomodeset acpi=off splash=verbose

    - you may need to do this each time when you run the 'Installation' or 'Update' option

    - after installing on an Asus G20, the following kernel options are recommended permanently,
    which you can set in Yast, Boot, Kernel parameters:
    pci=acpi pci=noaer splash=silent

    - also, it is suggested to install a minimum system in the non-graphics mode first, just to get the system running, then
    download the nVidia drivers for X using Yast from the Nvidia OpenSUSE repo, which is
    described here: https://en.opensuse.org/SDB:NVIDIA_drivers
    - install the appropriate for your graphics card. I used for a GTX970:
    - install the 'x11-video-nvidiaG05' driver*, then reboot
    - install the 'nvidia-glG05' for OpenGL 3D acceleration
    - then run 'Update' to bring the system up to graphics mode

    This problem was submitted to OpenSUSE.

    Possible causes:
    - PCI Advaced Error Reporting (AER) floods the system log
    - possible conflicts between the Intel and nVidia controllers prior to nVidia drivers being installed cause crash

    Also, in the BIOS settings, BOOT parameters, you can continue to use UEFI mode, but change the OS from "Windows" to "Other OS"

    Have you tried using bumblebee? Also, I covered required sequence to install for modern Intel+Nvidia laptop at the end here:

    Typically if you install with nouveau disabled, and nomodeset in boot options, it should work as soon as you install bumblebee+Nvidia then disable nomodeset in boot options.

    And just to stay in the saved side,

    - install mc and nano,
    - update completely your system before installing a proprietary driver on your system, Because it is the dangerous part of an installation, specially with a new computer and a new card.

    this way, If there is a problem, you will know the cause of your problem.
