I really like Elementary OS so I tried to install Loki on my laptop. It is a Lenovo Y570. Here are specs: https://www.cnet.com/products/lenovo-ideapad-y570/specs/
Video is NVIDIA GeForce GT 555M / Intel HD Graphics 3000 - 1 GB
. First of all, I had a lot of trouble installing it. I was getting a black screen before the login screen with the live disk but I found the nomodeset trick for nvidia cards. Still the screen was messing up (possibly when locking) during the install process that way, but I was able to install without any issues using the straight install partition with the nomodeset option.
Now I have an OS that boots, but the login screen is funny. My user name is there but there is no user name on what should be the guest account login. The login screen will accept my password but once entering it the login fields disappear but nothing else happens. There is no touchpad or keyboard response at this point, so I can't even flip to a text session and do anything.
Freya worked fine for me. I install it with the live image and there aren't any issues.
Can anyone help?
