Making NVIDIA drivers boot properly

Post by Daniel Wee » Sat 25 Jul 25 2015 11:22 pm

The proprietary nvidia driver should be used without KMS. You have to edit the /etc/default/grub file, use your favourite text editor (vi, nano, gedit, etc.):

sudo nano /etc/default/grub

Change the GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash" line to the following:

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash nomodeset"
Save the file, then run sudo update-grub Then reboot, and it should work.

If it still doesn't solve it, then remove also "quiet splash" from the previous line, and again sudo update-grub. (This will disable the graphical boot screen.)

The recovery booting did work, because the recovery menu entry had the nomodeset parameter.
