Thinkpad x1 extreme dual boot Linux

I want to dual boot Windows 10 and OpenSUSE Leap 15 on my ThinkPad X1 Carbon.

But when I want to install OpenSUSE the installation freezes on the loading screen.

I have tried some other distributions as well such as Ubuntu, Fedora and OpenSUSE Tumbleweed. (The live image of these distributions doesn't work as well)

 

I did make my bootable USB-drive with Ether and Rufus with an ISO file that I have checked with the SHA256 checksum.

 

I did change the following BIOS setting

  • Secure Boot: Disable
  • Both BIOS and UEFI boot 
  • CSM: enabled
  • No OS presets

 

What am I doing wrong?

I don't think you did anything wrong. I have the same problem even updated the bios to the latest version.

I had the same problem and fixed it by disabling the integrated graphics. You can do that in Config > Display choosing "Discrete graphics only"

Dont do this with a 4K Touch Screen Version and the latest Bios (might be for every Bios Version)
