I’m new to Linux, although I have run different distros in VMs when I was dabbling in cyber security in high school (Kali and Ubuntu).
I initially installed Zorin OS 16 Pro in a dual boot (2TB NVME) on a newly built system. This system is running a Ryzen 7 5800X and a Radeon 6700 XT. After installing it would hang on the boot, only showing the MSI MAG logo and that was it. I was lurking on these forums and found that nomodeset helped me to boot into the desktop, but now I can’t take advantage of my second monitor, I.e. second monitor is not even detected.
Secondly, when Zorin boots, an error is displayed saying “VGACON disables amdgpu” If that’s the case are my AMD drivers not even being used? I thought Zorin had AMD support out of the box, and if that is the case, might I have done something to break them?
I’ve tried blacklisting Radeon in my grub and also putting setting in my grub loader such as
Any help is greatly appreciated
