Black screen | Hi I am a newbie in this Linux World

Maybe you could remove quite splash from the GRUB parameters as above, to see if any useful info is shown?

I did try that way as well. It's been 30 mins and still waiting for the live USB page to load.

Please match your ISO checksums before every install,
Secondly you can use imgur for non staff members to see

Thirdly as Dalto said try getting into tty by pressing every f key uptill for, personally for me ctrl + alt + f6 that got me in

Edit - Failed formatting:(
ModEdit: Fixed formatting. Check how, so you know :wink:

It is finally working after I added "nomodeset radeon.modeset=0"
Now hopefully it's working well.
I will add more update after installing. Thanks a lot guys!


Hi it's me again! Now I am stuck at Starting Terminate Plymouth Boot Screen.
Does anyone have any idea to fix it?


Do you happen to use a display port?
If so, you could try if possible with an HDMI cable.

I have exactly same issue, this command helped, little.

nomodeset Radeon.modeset=0

Im also stuck at “ Starting Terminate Plymouth Boot Screen “.
Is there any way to install Garuda just by boot command line. No special graphics card needed?
I use laptop but i tried other monitor on HDMI cable, just for sure, it makes no difference.

This is a first time installation (live).

I hope tomorrow’s update will fix that, it is quite common issue. Of course AMD is also in fault.

At least we know where the problem is.

So how can I install that?

sudo pacman -S xf86-video-amdgpu vulkan-radeon libva-mesa-driver mesa-vdpau

Im trying to boot live first and it stops at “Starting Terminate Plymouth Boot”
Where should I write those commends ?

If there is a setting in your BIOS somehow concerning how thoroughly it checks the machine's hardware, you want it to be the max allowed.
