hy fedora users!

i installed latest Fedora to my MSI GP62 6QE (i7-6700 HQ, 8G RAM, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950m) laptop. I couldn't enter to installition, so i added "nomodeset" to boot config (while press e to open menu) file before start to install.

And, i finalized installition with 800x600 resolution, and restarted my system with Fedora. But i can't find my 1080p resolution on list. There is only 800x600 resolution.

I'm scaring to delete nomodeset from grub config, because i think i won't access to desktop, stuck at black screen with "OK" lines...

i think my nvidia driver is already enabled, but i just want disable intel graphics, it's correct question.

Disableing the intel is probably going to be a bios setting.

If you need to disable the Intel kernel module you need to add a blacklist.conf file in /etc/modprobe.d/ with a line like blacklist i915

The first order of business is to find out what graphics card/cards you have. Please post the response to lspci | grep VGA so that we can make sure that you actually have an Intel adapter to disable.
