Hello everyone

So let me give you a little back story,
I Installed PhoenixOS exe from Official website, installed, restarted to boot on the system, scratched/distorted screen happens when the welcome window first time appears.
that got fixed (don't know how) by burning the PhoenixOS.iso on a USB Flash and formatting the partition to EXT4, the screen was kind of cropped on the right and the whole screen looked foggy but not distorted, still unplayable.

Now I switched Darkmatter since PhoenixOS is outofdate
I did a normal install using the guided windows installation using the exe
when I finished the install, proceeded with the package choosing in boot console to Darkmatter
then it told me to switch to GUI using Alt+F7
Here's how the screen appeared:


basically every phoenix exe install I did looked like this when any GUI appears on the screen,
but If I install from USB Flash it doesn't happen, but I think it happens later, not sure.

How can I fix this?
Any help is appreciated please..

My specifications:
CPU: AMD R5 3600
GPU: RTX 2060
Partition: SSD Nvme ext4 (MBR type)

I had the same problem. Updating the kernel to 5.10 worked for me. But I m not sure if it has drivers for your GPU. I have AMD GPU
You can try updating the kernel using gearlock

Can you please guide me on updating the kernel from windows? I think I need to mount that partition and download kernel 5.10 and move the files there,, right?

Download also mesa or else kernel won't boot https://supreme-gamers.com/r/mesa-graphics-rendering-drivers-by-hmtheboy154.29/
And this Kernel https://supreme-gamers.com/t/xanmod-googlelts-codename-pledge-kernel-5-10-x-for-android-x86.377/
• Put them in your gearload folder
* For booted android-system: (Fx-File-Manager > gearload)
* For recovery mode: (Mount partition in windows with ExtFS shortcut on desktop and you will find gearload folder there)

• Then GearLock > 1] Install / Uninstall with GXPM
* For recovery mode you need to use option 4 in grub

• Use >> Select from gearload folder

• Choose your package/extension you wanna install

It's not because of kernel, its either, your pc is compatible with 64bit or your using 32bit os and installing on 64bit pc, check the bootiax 32 or 64bit, use "easy uefi" to check it its 32 or 64bit, or you can use DM grub to check and fix it automatically,

Yes. Mount the exefs partition.. and copy the kernel and mesa gearlock packages to the gearload folder or the data folder .. and boot the Darkmatter os and press g in console or Alt+f7.. and choose metro -> install/uninstall-> install from custom location. And choose the files (kernal and mesa) one by one .. and it will ask to update firmware too. Press Y for yes. And see if that works for you .. I'm having some boot problems after upding kernel.. but at least I can boot it up with drivers loaded.

@zuheralbank please read this post.
your cpu is fine but GPU might not work well.
best option is to test it with kernel 4.14.x / 5.4.x / 5.10.x and mesa 18.3.6 / 20.1.10
we've some expectations from upcoming mesa 20.2 hopefully it'll have some nvidia GPU fixes

I got an error on the install that says:

it should be read-only or does it require writing permissions?
I followed your steps precisely and this is the result..

hope you can help.

Thanks for the heads-up, I knew something like this was an issue.
I'm currently installing those 2 extensions and really hope they work out
but had an error on installing at the last post.

although I'm using DarkMatter_Exo4.7_BETA-2 (latest version I think)

looks like your system partition is not mounted as read/write to install any kernel / mes package first you need to extract the system.img file to ext4 drive and DM automatically does that when you first boot into the system.
but for some reason if your drive got corrupt then you need to format the drive & re-install the os & then again boot into the os for first time to let it extract the system.img then reboot to gearlock recovery to install your kernel & mesa.
