[Solved]Devuan 2.0 ascii beta and HP Compaq 6715s laptop installation

Devuan 2.0 ascii beta and HP Compaq 6715s laptop installation problem.

Hello everybody I`m a new user in the Devuan forum!

My issue is with HP computer. It is compaq 6715s laptop. I was trying to install Devuan on my laptop. It begings all good, but it always is interrupted by a black screen and I can`t go on. I had the same problem with other distros too. The workaround was to add a boot option "noapic" in the beginning of the installation.

So my question is how can I add a boot option on installation before the kernel boots.

This laptop is known for it`s "bad" behauvoir. But is there any change to get Devuan into this laptop. At this point I am using UbuntuMate 16.04.3 LTS in this laptop.

Thanks in advantage.

At the boot menu, press either TAB or e to be able to edit the boot command and add whatever extra options you want. If you're booting bios hardware, you'll get an isolinux boot menu, and you use TAB to edit the command. If you're booting uefi, you'll get a grub menu, and you press e to edit the menu and add the option to the line that starts with 'linux'.
