I am trying to install fedora on my razerblade laptop, I think that there is a drivers issue. I get stuck at boot, just after grub. I am using the workstation 24 fedora iso from the fedora website. Any ideas? Thanks!

Ok, I figured out that I need to disable the Nvidia graphics on boot. For anyone else out there with this same question, if you have the same PC as me and wand to boot fedora, ubuntu, debain or other linux distributions that I have not yet tried, you need to add this kernel boot parameter:
