Fedora 30 Not Working on Omen with nVidia

Hello, I have tried to install Fedora 28, 29, and 30 on my HP Omen with nVidia Graphics. Fedora 28 and 29 had issues with the Keyboard, Fedora 30 tested just fine from the USB drive however after installing it, the system would not go past the login screen. No functions on the keyboard or mouse worked either.

I loved Fedora 26 and would love to use Fedora 30 over Windows 10. Is there a patch that needs installed while using the trial USB drive? Any thoughts or driver programs that I need to install with it?

I know that other Linux Editions have nVidia Graphics included in the IOS and wondered if Fedora had similar?

Fedora doesn't package in the main project any software that has a
non-free license. There are other repositories that do package such
software, the primary one being rpmfusion.org. They package the binary
blob from nvidia, and a utility called akmod that builds it into a
module for the linux kernel. You can find more information here:

In particular, it is possible to enable those repositories so that
doing an update of Fedora pulls in any updates of their packages.

I'm not sure that this will fix your issue. You are actually asking on
the wrong list, this is really a users issue, so you should post it on
one of the following with a detailed description:

The users mailing list,
Community support for Fedora users < ... at lists dot fedoraproject.org>

or the web based help interface,

These are independent of each other.
