    [SOLVED] No video after choosing fedora in grub.

    Hello guys, today I got a sad problem: When I run fedora (liveCD), it works properly but then I install it (the installation process seems to be ok) and by the moment I choose fedora in grub, what I got is just a white-blinking screen that never ends.

    So I tried to install many others DEs and distros: Fedora(KDE), Fedora(LXDE), Mint(Cinnamon), Kubuntu, Lubuntu, Mageia, OpenSuse and the same problem appears: everything works as LiveCD but not after installation on hard drive.

    I don't know what is wrong, however, I'm using a ATi VGA (hd6670) and i've read that ATi graphic cards are often getting into trouble with linux.

    What can I do?

    A guess is that perhaps the liveCDs are all using VESA (the sort of lowest common denominator of video) but after install, they're having trouble with your video card. You can try editing the grub line and add vga=vesa to the end of it, and seeing if it will boot.

    @smr54! Thank you!!! By the time that worked I went bananas!

    Complete procedure:

    1 Edit /etc/default/grub and append vga=769 to the end of the line that starts with GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT.

    2 Update GRUB2 by using command:
    Code:
    grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg
