Help Scratched/Distorted screen on PhoenixOS/Darkmatter GUI

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)

An XDA user got double Rtx 2080 ti to work fine in Bliss OS
Try to remove those (return to original code) and see if you can boot.
So do I have to drop Darkmatter and switch to BlissOS? where can I find Bliss kernel and use it I guess?

I went back to original grub, fresh install, added two extensions (kernel 5.10.1, mesa 20.1.10)

This is really a turn down for me, I feel like this is can't be fixed??..

The problem is related to your GPU as i've already told you nvidia have poor support over android x86.
and your AMD CPU can't run without any discrete GPU so you can't even boot the OS one way around it to use nouveau.modeset=0 as your grub kernel parameter & force kernel to use google swift shader instead, but that's software based, so you can't play any 3d games on it.
in the end i'd suggest to either change your GPU or keep using PC emulators until NVidia decide to opensource their drivers.

So this way, even if I managed someway to start the system, my GPU won't be able to render anything, that's a noice thing.

I really just want to play with Octopus (the game controller) on a emulator like gameloop, because its the best game controller.. so smooth, even if the entire OS is laggy which is impressive.

Do you think BlissOS would work for me and support my CPU,GPU ?

Thanks for clearing the thread.

There is an old octupos v 2.2.5 that works on bliss os , found other site, i just cant remeber the link, but it works just dont update it the octupos and it will work fine, the only missing on that is alt(key),

bliss won't work with that gpu either.
any nvidia gpu above GTX 1080 will have issues.
and those who are support needs to stay on kernel 4.14 & lower.
so ryzen + nvidia is worst combo for android x86.
