Good afternoon, I'm attempting to install the latest version of OpenSUSE (Tumbleweed) and upon choosing install I lose my video. I'm currently running with a Nvidia GTX 970. Unfortunately I don't have the option to use VGA with this card. Is there a way to get around this so I can proceed through the installation?

Thanks in advance


So I was able to figure it out. For those struggling with something similar:

  1. boot your pc
  2. enter the grub2 config (press e when system hits grub boot screen)
  3. remove the "quiet splash" and replace it with nomodeset (no quotes)
  4. press F10 to boot
  5. install should begin

enjoy ;-)
