Unhappy Linux distro for using it as live-usb with persistence supporting nvidia 1060?


I want to use a live-usb with persistence for my asus tuf fx504gm.. I tried to use ubuntu 18.04 live but it is giving me issues of blank screen, no persistence..
I used unetbootin to create USB!

So I want to ask which distro is good for me.. I use Linux just for programming but nothing else... So I don't consider dual boot or vm,.. I don't have another USB to install in it..
Please help me... I browsed through many forums.. No help received till now!

Edit: I was able to boot ubuntu live OS by using nomodeset. I used unetbootin to create USB with 4gb persistence..
After adding nomodeset, I updated nvidia drivers and rebooted.. Then screen got frozen again.. By using nomodeset again, I was able to boot but no use.. Everything's back to normal without any saved files!

Possibly AntiX or MX Linux, they're pretty good at getting most computers graphics to work.

Unetbootin has an option to create a persistent file so that you can add software and save it on reboot. Did you select that option when creating the Ubuntu usb?

You could try adding the "nomodeset" option to the kernel line on boot, the line beginning with linux. When you boot and see the Grub boot menu, hit the e key on the keyboard and you should be able to edit that line.

Welcome to the forums.

Ubuntu should work.

You can try other distributions, but perhaps what you ought to do is offer more details such as what guide you did follow to do the persistent install of Ubuntu. Perhaps you had an error in doing so, or perhaps there's a problem running or booting Linux on the ASUS machine. No real experience, however I've heard that they are difficult and you have to work a bit to configure the BIOS differently.

Have you been able to boot live Linux at all?

Yes.. I tried using nomodeset. But it works only once.. Reboot and all data gone.. I need to type nomodeset every time

Actually what I'm wondering is that the problem is that the boot flags are not on the portion of the drive that uses persistence.

And thus you have to enter the change to the boot flags all the time.

I wonder if anyone else has encountered a similar problem and if they managed to resolve it.

It's OK to enter nomodeset everytime.. But if data gets cleared always when booting its no use I guess.. I don't get it where did I make wrong while adding persistence

OK, well the next step then would be to try to figure out why persistence did not work.

Some things to try would be to re-do the USB and you should post the link to any guide which you are following.

Another option would be to try persistence with another distribution.

Please do not open a duplicate thread about this and continue with this one. The clarification about the boot flags is fine as well as your statement that entering it at each boot is fine.

Can you suggest any method sir? Maybe shall I try any other tool to create USB?

Else can I add persistence to same live USB after starting live OS?
