See this post for context: NixOS stable & unstable won't boot from usb on XPS 9570
Just got a Dell XPS 7390, disabled Secure Boot, set SATA to AHCI rather than RAID, altered boot order, and tried to boot from USB using
All I get is the Dell logo when I select the USB from the boot selection menu (I’ve moved the USB around to the various available ports with no dice- even enabled Thunderbolt boot and SD-card boot, but both to no avail).
I would try setting Legacy Boot mode enabled, however the BIOS mentions
Boot Mode: UEFI only under ‘Boot Options’ and there is no option that I can see to enable it. =[
I really would like a replacement for my work Mac that I can install NixOS onto (13" is great for portability, but I dislike the touch-bar and don’t anticipate full-featured driver support for that at the moment) and the search is getting frustrating these days…
Any advice for getting this up and running NixOS before I end up
settling for Nix on ubuntu? returning the hardware (ubuntu will boot, but not detect the wifi adapter- bluetooth, sure- wifi, no…)?
