    No blinking curser and no gdm...just blackout!
    installed nvidia-dkms-kernel
    updated-initramfs -u
    on reboot no screen atall

    I dont have recovery option from grub
    I boot from refit /vmlinuz
    ideally would prefer single boot but everytime i follow any guides it never works, even dual boot wasn't easy

    anyway, how can i get a shell to delete the xorg.conf file
