    Internal Graphics - Disable (or Auto if available)

    Hard to believe that you did not see that...
    Oh, that? I already tried that and it did not help whatsoever. Please stop being so condescending. Thank you. I am looking for help, not accusations.

      I hate it when something is caused by an incorrect BIOS configuration :/ IIRC, the option was hidden and at the very end of all the configuration options on my ASRock board, too
      The thing is, my monitor is already connected to the GPU, and shows me everything up until the blinking underscore. Why would the CPU suddenly be a problem? And why is it not a problem only when booting the nonfree driver in UEFI mode?

        For Kanotix gfxdetect mode it is not allowed to have Intel active. In that case i do not activate fglrx. Certainly i would use something i know that works, if it does not it is a driver fault. From usb key you can start Kanotix in uefi and mbr mode.

          Disable PCI-E 3.0 (and use PCI-E 2.0 instead) in the UEFI? There won't be any performance decrease, especially considering how the 290(X) is crippled under non-Windows OS...
