I am trying to install Fedora 29 on a Lenovo P72 with a nvdia P2000 graphics card.

This machine is "Red Hat" certified, so I had hoped everything would work out of the box.

'Hope' is a four letter word.

I tried the straight install and it stopped dead on Gnome Manager.

I tried to load in Basic Graphics mode 'nomodeset', and after all the text goes away, I get a black screen. Nothing.

I tried nouveau.nomodeset=0. Black Screen.

I entered 3 at the end of the line and I got an login screen. It's a fresh install, so what is the username and password? I tried admin/admin and it failed.

I have turned OFF Secure Boot.

Any advice is appreciated.
