Configuration menu question

Post by jacatone » Thu Oct 31, 2019 9:54 pm

Been trying to install the latest version of GhostBSD XFCE on an old Dell Latitude D620. When I get to the Configuration menu I'm not sure which driver or setting to select. When I select the top one, the machine just stops. Any ideas? Thanks.

I guess you want to talk about the video driver to choose when launching the live image?

If you haven't tried it, perhaps you should select 'VGA' and see if that works.

Yes using a common driver is useful to test the graphic card.

..........thinking about it, the list includes 'Vesa' which is the selection to try!
