It's an issue with Nvidia GPU.

Boot with nomodeset kernel parameter, then you should be able to login. Now you've got three options:

  1. use Bumblebee
  2. in BIOS disable Optimus and install Nvidia driver (Nvidia GPU will be always active, so don't expect long battery runs)
  3. in BIOS disable Nvidia GPU, you'll be using only Intel GPU, no need for any additional drivers, that way you get long battery runs and slow GPU performance.

Bumblebee is probably the best option, 2 and 3 are unavailable on some laptops. For now Wayland will only work with 3 (in other options you have to use X.Org, it should happen automatically).
