Boot failed with GNOME live DVD or DVD

Hi,

I just downloaded (and burned on DVD) “opensuse Tumbleweed GNOME live x86_64 20160531” and "“opensuse Tumbleweed DVD x86_64 20160531” then tried to boot them on my new MSI laptop GE62 6QC-246XFR (http://www.cdiscount.com/informatique/ordinateurs-pc-portables/msi-pc-portable-gamer-ge62-6qc-246xfr-15-6-full/f-10709-9s716j532246.html).

Before booting, I modified the following in BIOS :

  • BIOS Leagcy (instead of UEFI)
  • disabled Intel SpeedStep
  • disabled FastBoot

So after booting,openSuse seems start to load but after some minutes, the tumbleweed “animation” (= 3 dots light / dark) freeze and nothing happens…

As found in some websites, I tried to add the “nomodeset” boot option then loading process freeze on this:

Then I tried the ALT + F4 shortcut :
https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B7LOjQEmkS19bFFGWnpkRUJVY1k

Then connected as root (no password asked), I tried the “startx” command :
https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B7LOjQEmkS19OEVOdzJ1MVU2SGM

Note that I tried A LOT of other liveDVD distro and only Fedora (in low-graphic mode) has booted successfully… Now, I am using Fedora but my Nvidia GTX960m seems not recognized :’(

I would like to try OpenSuse Tumbleweed (with linux kernel 4.6), please help :frowning:

Just a guess, if you burned the DVD with a Windows application try burning it with a Linux app instead (maybe from Fedora Live…).
Otherwise, press “Esc” when at the Plymouth screen (the Three blinking dots…) so that you can see what’s happening and can post any errors that are shown.
Please note that OpenSUSE images should boot with UEFI (but secure-boot disabled) with no problems.

“startx” doesn’t work in current Tumbleweed AFAIK. Try:


telinit 3

to reset the graphical interface, then:


telinit 5

to start the default X session (and possibly see where the system hangs).

For the Nvidia GPU, maybe you have to wait: current proprietary drivers have issues with the 4.6 Kernel, see openSUSE Tumbleweed kernel update and NVIDIA driver problem - Hardware - openSUSE Forums
