Question Thinkpad T14s BIOS settings - Can't load slackware


I have a Thinkpad t14s on which I recently installed slackware 15. The installation went smoothly. The problem is booting - when the computer turns on, it should recognize the OS and boot to it. Instead, I'm stuck in the select boot device screen. Choosing Slackware only makes the screen flash and then reappear.

I already turned off secureboot. Any ideas on which settings I should try changing?

Is this the new ddr5 bleeding edge model? Try slackware current (drivers might be to old in 15 for bleeding edge hardware).

It's one generation old. Gen 3, ryzen model.

Where can I find the current build? I can't seem to locate it on the slackware mirrors site

No, still nothing.

I also tried it in legacy mode, just to be sure. ELILO seemed to be successful and made a startup entry, just as before. And when that didn't work, I tried LILO.

I don't see a lot of write-ups from others who tried to install slackware on a (newer) thinkpad. \_(ツ)_/

Edit: I tried the KMS option before installation, and now I can get to:

ELILO v3.16 for EFI/x86_64
.
Loading kernel vmlinuz... done
Loading file initrd.gz...done

-------------------
but then it stops.
