I got Arch 64 working so far.
The wifi works and the screen orientation is fine. To not get a black screen I had to set "nomodeset" as a kernel parameter.
Could anybody with GUI working tell me, which kernel parameters are set? I would like to get rid of nomodeset.
Thanks for your input.....interesting that nomodeset has worked for you.
Every distro I tried using it with at boot up, gave me error message that it is not an available command (or option, or something like that...).
At the moment I'm stuck at getting Gnome working.
If I try to start Gnome with "startx" it complains about a missing screen.
If I try to start Gnome via GDM the cursor starts blinking in a strange way and nothing happens.
By the way:
It also works fine if I delete "video=efifb" out of the kernel parameter. But it doesn't fix the Gnome issue.
Unfortunately I have not so much time to work on it.
I'm open for new ideas, especially for a full set of kernel parameter of a working GUI system.
I assume you read the info on this page about using Arch:
Arch on WIN
I may decide to try Arch or Manjaro if I can't figure out or get info on why I have such problems with the other distros as I have noted....
