Problems install nixos on Dell alienware / nvidia 4060

I am trying to install nixos in a dual boot setting with windows 11.

The problem is that the screen turns black after I select an option in the boot entry of the installer.

I think this is because the laptop uses nvidia gpu 4060.

I am able to start the installer for Ubuntu in safe graphics mode. Does something similar exist for the nixos installer?

Is the best option to build my own installer iso image, enabling nvidia driver? Is this possible to do? Any pointers on how to do this?

Thanks for helping out :blush:

It turns out you can install NixOS from any Linux distro, so that was the easiest way around this.
