I'm having a couple of problems with a clean install of Loki on my late 2016 model Razer Blade Stealth with an Intel i7-7500U (Kaby Lake) CPU and integrated graphics.
I'm able to boot to the login screen, but if I go to the command line (
F1) the screen starts flickering. If I try to login, the screen fills with static and doesn't show the desktop, regardless of how long I wait.
If I boot into recovery mode, the flickering goes away and the static is reduced, but when I try to login, it shows the cursor and the desktop background and becomes unresponsive.
Here's what I've tried thus far:
- Clean installing the OS, God knows how many times
- The good ol'
sudo apt-get update,
sudo apt-get upgrade, and
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
sudo ubuntu-drivers autoinstall, thinking it was a driver problem
- I tried installing
xserver-org-video-inteland its dependencies
- I renamed the file
/etc/xdg/autostart/at-spi-dbus-bus.desktopas described here
- I added
nomodesetto the Grub configuration as described here
sudo apt-get installed
intel-microcode, which turns out was already installed
If there's any way to get Elementary to work on this laptop, some instructions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
