Im posting this here because Im running into issues with Mint. Every time I boot while in UEFI I cant get into the GUI or terminal nor does it process any further than GRUB. I really love the OS and Ive been using it for a short while [6-months] but I recently had to change the laptop that I used due to work. I now have the MSI GS70 Stealth 2PE Pro and I cant get the OS to run the GUI while in UEFI mode but while in Legacy I am able to get the GUI as well as a complete system install but alas no Dual Boot with windows 8.1. Please note that when I am experiencing this issue Secureboot is Disabled, Fastboot enabled and UEFI with CSM is enabled. Now I do need windows to be able to run the 3D design software for work while I am keeping my personal information in the linux partition (without encryption on the drive through any software or OS)
I believe the black screen when I boot is due to the NVIDIA GPU processor that is built into the computer and is controlled by the MSI software on the windows side while continuously on in any other system.
I have tried to include in the grub from both LiveCD and USB (as I am trying to get it to boot so I can install it) the following:
- nomodeset grub_gfxmode=1920x1080x24
Any advice or help would be appreciated.
