Installing OpenMandriva 2013 Beta on a laptop with ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4650 (in my case Sony Vaio VGN-FW46M)



You have a  laptop with ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4650 (in my case Sony Vaio VGN-FW46M) and your OpenMandriva 2013 Beta does not show a screen after installation and booting?


I wrote about this issue last year already but it's a bit different with this new release.

Here is what you have got to do:

Select in grub boot menu that you want to edit the entry.

then you add the following line in the menu entry:


"vga=844 nomodeset"
You will be very pleased to see that OpenMandriva 2013 will boot for you now ! :)
