Installing Linux Mint on Dell G3 3579


I'm having trouble getting Linux Mint to run on my new laptop. I thought I would be a breeze since it shipped with Ubuntu, and last time I installed Mint on a Dell it was very straightforward. However even though liveusb worked fine and installation of LM Tessa 19.1 was successfull, when I try to login I get a black screen with a cursor. I wanted to try running it with nomodeset since I suspect that nvidia gpu is giving me trouble, however I cannot access regular grub as well. I get a "minimal bash like line editing" screen instead of normal grub.

Does someone know how to resolve it or did anyone successfully install LM on this laptop?

Thanks in advance
