I have been trying to install Kali Linux Rolling amd64 on HP Omen 15 without success. First, neither the WIFI nor the desktop were working, and a lot of googling turned out useless. Then I got the WIFI working, but the desktop was not being displayed. I can switch to the
tty terminals, however, but I must do this early or the OS will freeze. I tried a lot, and I mean A LOT, of solutions and googling and nothing worked. I tried solutions on DebianOn, but since they don't have manuals for Omen I tried other related hardware configurations, nothing of which worked. The main problem is: how do I get that desktop display?
The ACPI errors show first, then it takes around 5 seconds for the nouveau errors to display.
And these are the final errors. If these show up before I switch to a
tty, the system freezes and I can't do anything except a hard shutdown. If I switch to a
tty before I get these errors, I can work normally on every
tty but the desktop display is frozen.
Edit: I also can't reboot or poweroff from the
tty, I must hard shutdown.
Edit2: It also seems that I have only one shot at the system after installing it; I mean, I can only boot into it once - without graphics, just
ttys - without it freezing. Every boot other than the first just freezes while booting. Even
ttys can't work then. Also, on every non-first boot, I get a message like
BUG: soft lockup - CPU#1 stuck for 23s!. This is the only message that keeps showing up after the system freezes.
