I have a system that I just can not seem to get the video to work.
After a fresh install any video mode gives me a grabled screen. Just
like with all the ISO images after the first selection menu. Boot
from Hard Disk, Installation or any option. It does not matter what
I choose in the F3 Video.

I have found that I am able to use the 12.2 media and do an install
or rescue system. What I do is boot off the CD or DVD and choose
Hard Disk

I then let Rescue or install find the source in


When I do this I am able to use the screen all the way through till
it reboots then the video is messed up.

With the rescue system, it boots off the HD and does an
initialization which I am able to see. It does everything just like
a normal system except it gives me the Login and I am able to login.

How do I get the system to be able to have a display like with the
12.2 media but everything shows a 12.3 install or boot for rescue
just like on other systems.

Any ideas on what I may do to get a screen. Usually I am able to get
a network going and work on the system remotely. I have been unable
to get a display on the main console.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance,

Hi Boyd,

Could you be a little more specific? What hardware is involved? What
'flavor' of 12.3?
