I’m trying to install Nixos for the first time (on an empty ssd, goal is to make a dual boot with windows 10 ) and I’m not really familiar with linux in general. Booting from an old 2gb USB stick with the 20.03 ISO opens up the installer choices but after choosing the installer I get a few lines running and get to the root login before the system seems to freeze with a black screen and an _ in the upper corner. I never get anywhere from that unless I reboot. copytoram and debug installers freeze at the same spot. The same iso works just fine in VirtualBox.
I’m running an old i5-3570k with a rtx 2070 and someone mentioned this might be a graphics driver issue but a friend of mine had no problems with the same iso and a 2080 so I don’t know what to think. I also have 2 displays and before the freeze the few lines of the installer jump back and forth between them.
Any ideas or pointers would be welcome.
