Sabayon 13.11 Black Screen

Postby akrep55tr » Fri Nov 08, 2013 20:59

I want to do a fresh install with Sabayon 13.11 today with no success. I ended at boot in black screen. I searched the forum and I think the solution is changingthe video parameter:
Code: Select all
Can you try booting with "video=uvesafb:x" (replace the existing video= parameter)


But I couldnot find the video parameter. When I see install menu I hit f5 a window pop up but there is no video option. After that I can edit boot options but there is again no video option. Where is it?
I upload two pictures to show what I have:
My video card is nvidia optimus.

As all I remember you can simply add the video parameter, maybe leading to vga, so that it looks alike:
Code: Select all
initrd=/boot/sabayon.igz aufs cdroot splash video=uvesafb:1024x768 vga=791 quiet --

For more information and other possible solutions, you may look here:
