ASUS Q524UQ: gets stuck at logo


#1

Hello everyone!

I am new to TrueOS and tried to install it on my laptop ASUS Q524UQ in UEFI mode. However, it gets stuck at the boot splash logo, e.g. nothing happens and no response from keyboard/mouse. What can be the problem?
If it can help, the laptop has NVIDIA Optimus (Intel HD 520 + NVIDIA GeForce 940MX) without an option to switch GPU in BIOS.

Thank you!
