I booted my Dell Inspiron XPS 15-7559 with Arcolinux 19.04 by adding the string below to the boot line after hitting Tab to edit the line from the boot screen.
After installing what I would like to do is being able to use both (Intel HD Graphics 630 and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 w/ Optimus or PRIME or Bumblebee) and if not at least use NVIDIA. I see yours has only NVIDIA.

I don't do much graphics intensive work.

The games I play are simple stuff, but I have a 4k 43 inch big screen for it to drive with its HDMI video output.

As long as it's good enough for Pac Man or Galaxians, I'll be happy. I don't know what mide its going to use.

I backed up the windows and made a rescue boot for it, and tested it. I cleaned up unused files from the windows drive. I defragmented it and then reduced its partition size smaller but with a good safety margin . I loaded the root of my main Linux system and a swap drive equal to memory size onto the ssd in the freeed up space .

That is how my dell i7-7559 was loaded.

Take safety precautions, i am not responsible for your machine, and i don't know anything about it.

Sad to say I use DFU or DBU (its improved clone) many days, still.

Small world, huh?

I'm not allowed to use the Lin*x word at work. I call it QSH, LOL. They don't know.

Try adding to your boot line:

Code: Select all

acpi_osi=! acpi_osi=Windows i915.preliminary_hw_support=1
Ok. So news on this:

I added to the USB at G:\loader\entries (my USB drive on Windows is G:):

Code: Select all

options archisobasedir=arch archisolabel=alb-gnome-v19.04.4-x86_64 acpi_osi=! acpi_osi=Windows i915.preliminary_hw_support=1 locale=pt_PT keytable=pt driver=free noveau.modeset=1 i915.modeset=1 systemd.show_status=1 
Add a problem with by-label and just change

Code: Select all

archisolabel=alb-gnome-v19.04.4-x86_64
by

Code: Select all

archisolabel=ALB-GNOME-V
and it boots smoothly.

Installed. Reboot. It boots with no problem.

Now start another problem:
  • LightDM allows me to login.
  • It starts to load Gnome and blocks.
  • On login when trying to reboot it freezes too.

How would you suggest partitioning the 2 drives for best performance? What sizes/configuration for the various directories?
What I did was use the SSD for the partitions:
- boot EFI (there's where Windows 10 stored it too)
- Windows
- /boot
- / (where programs are)

The rest goes to the HDD:

- Windows Data
- /home
- /var

Did this because SSD is faster and I want Apps to run faster. The /temp used by several programs to process data (like video, etc) is at SSD too.

bought this around two month ago and I want to install Arcolinux on 1 tera hdd.

Asus VivoBook Pro Notebook, 15.6" 4K/UHD IPS, Intel Core i7-7700HQ, RAM 16 GB, HDD da 1TB e SSD da 512 GB, NVidia GTX1050

I've been installed arcolinux but when i login it blocks sometimes my mouse or my keyboard or all the system. How can I do?
I love arch and I want to use it. (On my old pc it worked)

Thanks!

See what other users are saying about your hardware

Google the words arch linux and then your hardware.
Learn, have fun and enjoy.
But first use the power of the Arch Wiki
use the tutorials on https://www.youtube.com/erikdubois
then use the power of google
then use the power of our moderators.
