black screen on boot

I just installed arch on my laptop.
When I try to boot it from grub the screen turns black.
Setting nomodeset solves the problem but obviously leads to other problems.
I already tried everything that is written in the Wiki nothing seems to work.
Graphics Card: Intel HD520
Hope someone has a good idea what to do next smile

Re: black screen on boot

Can you reverse nomodeset and blindly get into x?

Add Intel to mkinitcpio.conf?

Re: black screen on boot

Added Intel to mkinitcpio.conf and it did nothing.
After a few hours frustration I installed lts kernel and it seems to work.
Should have thought of this sooner wink
But anyways thanks for the help
