Sli issue

So in quick tense I have SLI in my alienware laptop.
Being said any linux distribution I install is a pain, but why u ask.
I don’t know all I know is that when I install or boot I add nouveau.modest=0 to the boot line n it works
Or with say mint I do that to install then first boot I boot into safe graphics mode. Then in stall nvidia driver

So I got calculate linux installed and would like to know how or if I can access a recovery or safe graphics mode.
Or a way that I can install nvodia drivers before fully booting.(with out wasting 3 hours)
Thanks yall

Do you try select “Nvidia proproitary driver” on boot screen in livecd (F5)? Then for framebuffer will be used uvesafb.
