I am trying to install Fedora 24 on GT72S 6QE dominator PRO G with 6820HK and 980M. While loading, it gets stuck at "started session c6 of user GDM". Tried setting C0 Cstate, nomodeset but in vain.

I have similar issue with a skylake / gtx970 combination. Seems a bug with gdm and the nouvea kernel module combined. Was able to nouveau.modeset=0 and boot to rescue kernel and then disable the graphical login:

# systemctl set-default

Now I can at least get a login and startx with a simple window manager. But gdm and gnome-shell are just not working yet for me.

thank you for your support. Can you please tell me how to boot to rescue kernel. I am new to linux. Sorry for my lame question
