After selecting to start the LiveOS or to Install, I always end up with a root autologin and the root prompt in pink.
In between I see 3 sets of 3 strange characters in the middle of the screen changing from gray to white, like they were some sort of progress bar...

I have tried the following boot options:
1. Adding ATI cheat code to the boot string on both options with no change.
Code: Select all
systemctl restart kdm
3. Tried xdriver=vesa on the boot options, still get the root prompt.
I'm attaching a pic of the end of dmesg message from root prompt. http://i.imgur.com/Oy2XQ7O.jpg
Thank you guys for your help!!!
