You can then manually "ignore" the GTX1060 during boot by using the "nv_disable=1" command-lime option. This gives you non-accelerated graphics by putting the card in "VESA" mode. As an additional step for difficult systems you can also use the "Safe Mode" command-line " -s " option.
Does anyone know how to diagnose/why VESA mode fails? "nv_disable=1" fails to change anything to me, leaving me with a bricked machine.

I ran the installer again, and I actually managed to avoid the gIOLockState 3 error if I boot from internal graphics, however then I end in a reboot cycle, with the text scrolling too fast to properly see what is even going on.
