I want to install Fedora 25 to dual boot on my machine. I would prefer to use UEFI to dual boot with Windows 10 that is already installed. I have an Intel 600p NVMe SSD and a Samsung 850 Evo on which I want to install Fedora. Other potential hardware problems are the GeForce GTX 1070 and maybe the USB peripherals.

The simptomes are: mouse cursor not moving and staying in the top left corner although it is detected that I move the mouse as I get to trigger hot corners and highlight hover states in the UI. The keyboard is misbehaving : tab triggers multiple times on keyless for example. I managed to get to partition with great difficulty but there the installation hanged just after I confirmed the partitioning.

I'm thinking I should try the KDE spin or try other distro like arch maybe but I wanted to check first if someone got this.

I bet it's a problem with the nouveau video driver.

You may want to activate the internal graphics adapter, use it to install Fedora, then install the nvidia driver and only then switch back to your nvidia graphics card.

How do I switch. Phisically or I can edit some config?
