Glitches while installation

I was facing gliteches while installing endeavouros-2019.08.17-x86_64.iso

Also, the EFI boot option doesn’t show Endeavour when dual booting with Windows.

look like composition of xfce it can turned off, there is a work around that should work, you got probably a amd gpu?

Maybe lack of storage?

for onscreen distortion this can help Xfce 4.14 Vega video graphics issue and fix

xfconf-query -c xfwm4 -p /general/vblank_mode -s off

xpresent can help too…

Are you trying to install it to the usb drive which is 8 GB? I see your hard drive is 1 Terrabyte.

@AnkS

Please post the whole dmesg and xorg.log

?

I was installing it on hard drive.

It looks like it was trying to install on /dev/sdb? Your hard drive is /dev/sda.

I’ll retry with new installation disk!

That’s what it looks like to me. You have two issues. One being the garbled video because of the GPU and the other is the installation.

Your motherboard is UEFI so make sure you are installing with EFI set up. How are you creating the usb live ISO?

using dd method

If you have further issues when trying a new installation disk as @judd said “Please post the whole dmesg and xorg.log

Thanks.

I was able to install endeavour successfully after manual partitioning & using new installation media.

But, as soon as I log in to the system, the screen becomes dead.

Also, Ctrl+Alt+Fn combinations not showing anything.

I’m sorry to hear that it hasn’t gone according to plan. Are you able to edit the grub screen and add pci=noacpi and try.
