- Alienware Area 51M
- GPU: NVIDIA RTX 2080
- SSD mode: AHCI
- Secure Boot: disabled
- Not dual boot (I have removed the SSD installed with Windows 10)
- Live USB: created by balenaEtcher, and I confirm the USB drive has no problem. (tested installation on another laptop)
At beginning, I saw below screen:
I did tried the first three items but no one worked. Whenever I pressed ENTER, the screen became black. and the led on USB drive stopped flashing (meaning no reading action from the USB drive).
I also tried different parameters in grub. But all the same result as the above
- add "nomodeset"
- add "acpi=off nomodeset"
- add "acpi=off modprobe.blacklist=nouveau nomodeset"
- add "noacpi noapic nosplash nomodeset irqpoll nouveau.noaccel=1"
However, if I install Ubuntu 20.04 Desktop, the parameter "nomodeset" can work. and the screen shows something like loading files and the installation is no problem.
