Intel HD Grahpics only works with Upstart

Post by nocturncal » Tue Oct 17, 2017 6:48 am

Hello All,

I am running Linux Mint 18.2 KDE
Dell Inspiron i5577
Intel i7-7700HQ
Nvidia Geforce GTX 1050
Nvidia-384 Driver

When I boot with Nvidia as the selected graphics card, I have no problems booting Mint, but if I switch my graphics to intel and reboot it I'm left with a blank black screen after the splash screen appears.

Through some trial and error, I figured out that I can get my computer to boot using intel graphics if I boot Linux via Upstart.

Has anyone else stumbled across this problem, where Intel Graphics only works via Upstart and not Systemd? Is there any way to select Intel Graphics and boot via systemd?

Thanks in advance
