    a little update:

    When i get to the part where i can select the kernel (grub) i press A to edit the boot.

    I've removed rhgb quiet

    and replace it with a 3 so the comp will start in text mode.

    After doing this everything goes is that ?

    it's because the problem you're having is with loading X, and runlevel 3 doesn't load X...

    I'm not quite sure what the real 'fix' is yet...I'll let you know if I find anything.

    Ok, so the smartes thing to do is boot the computer in text mode, and if nessasary start X.

    My question:

    How do i configure my computer so i wilt have TEXT mode as standaard boot ? ( runlevel 3)
