I am trying to install leap 15.1 installation in Dell XPS15 laptop (2019) . Everything went well until I obtained the following information, and the laptop shutdown automatically:
Loading basic drivers... OK
Starting hardware detection .... OK
(If a driver is not working for you, try booting....)
Intel 82001 Mobile SATA Controller [RAID mode]
Activating usb devices....
All of a sudden, the computer shut down automatically.
Check the SATA controlers settings in UEFI. It should be in AHCI mode , not in RAID mode. However just changing that setting will kill your Windows installation on that disk. Look for instructions how to uninstall Intel RST driver on Windows if you want to save that Windows installation.
There might be workarounds, but they might not be trivial…
There are reports of the nouveau driver leading to a kernel panic. Try if booting with the “nomodeset” boot option lets you complete the installation.
Also, please use the full DVD to install since you may have problems setting up WiFi and a network install might not complete.
(Sorry I’m sort of shooting in the dark, never had my hands on a system like that).
thanks a lot for your suggestions.
Now I have installed leap 15.1 in my Dell XPS 15 successfully, after I add option “nomodeset” in the boot menu. However, I noticed that, if I keep this option, my laptop cannot be recognized by external screen. Moreover, I cannot install NVIDIA driver, it always complained that my kernel wasn’t be configured properly.
If I remove the option “nomodeset” from boot menu, I cannot login into account. It always pop up login menu again and again.
