[SOLVED] Archiso crashing on 2018 Macbook Pro

Hello,

I am trying to install Arch on my new Macbook Pro with the USB live installation media I have used on other machines with no problem and, on my Mac only, it crashes after running with seemingly no problem for a short while.

I took a video of the crash as it happened and managed to get a screenshot of the very last moment before my monitor just goes black (display does not turn off, just displays an empty black screen) so I apologize for the poor quality of the following screenshot:

Does anyone have an idea? This is my first time installing Arch on any Mac.

Thank you! Any help is more than welcome and much appreciated!

What's the exact hardware? I'd guess some modesetting issue due to nouveau or similar, does it go further with the kernel parameter nomodeset ? If that doesn't help, add loglevel=7 that might provide more information.

Hello V1del,

Thank you for your quick reply!

I wasn't aware of this and will be getting back to you shortly (once I figure out how to use nomodeset with a live USB drive).

Thanks again!

EDIT: sorry for this poor answer on my hardware but I am unable to run neat commands on the Mac (at least, I think!) since the live USB crashes at startup but here are the specs from Apple (I have the 2.2 GHz CPU, 256 GB SSD and 2.2 GHz GPU).

EDIT 2: given progandy's message, I am marking the thread as solved

Be aware, that linux probably still won't recognize the nvme controller in the 2018 macbook pro and you cannot install it.

Thank you for this!! I guess I will just have to settle for Mac OS on this machine (at least, for now!).

Thank you all for taking the time to assist me! The Arch community is awesome!
