Parabolaiso and radeon rx
I have radeon rx580 and can't inarll Parabola.
Parabolaiso screen freez on initilize linux kernel step.
Amdgpu module can't correct load module.

Archlinux boot and work correctly.
What you are discribing sounds like a non-free firmware issue.
ATI videocards are vary bad for falling into this category.
Arch works because they carry the non-free firmware, Parabola does not
You can probably get to a command line by editing the grub settings before booting (press e)
and change GFX_PAYLOAD=text or adding similar vga= kernel parameter to force a plain text non-framebuffer VT
But if it is indeed the case of a non free firmware (and from all the references I'm seeing to rx580 and VBIOS and other indicator
there may not be much point in installing as perfromance of anything non-text would be pretty crap. So depending on what you want to do it might be a non-starter.

this device is documented on h-node as working
This card is supposed to be run with the AMDGPU driver which depends on a binary firmware. Using the free ATI driver works however, and 3D seems to be supported (glxgears works OK). Lots of features are missing however, including many RandR controls (e.g. brightness) and waking up from sleep. You might have to blacklist the amdgpu kernel driver or else the system won't boot.
so ... i suppose the work-around is to install parabola using
one of the CLI ISOs, then blacklist the amdgpu module on the
were you using one of the CLI ISOs, or the LXDE ISOs ?
