TahrPup64 graphics problem
I hope this is the right place for this question.
I bought a new Acer notebook a few days ago with Windows10 and I am trying to see if I can get it to dual boot with TahrPup. If I can't I will delete Win10. This question is a last grasp at a straw to save Win10.
If I boot from a USB stick in legacy mode it mostly works. The only obvious problem is that it won't Exit to Prompt - I think because X is confused.
However if I make another USB stick with the same TahrPup64 6.0.5 and boot it with GrubEFI as in this Blog http://blog.puppylinux.com/?viewDetailed=00009 it cannot figure the graphics out even if I run xorgwizard and point it to the correct 1368x768 size.
As far as I can see the ACER has some sort of Intel graphics driver - one message I saw appear said something like "Intel 800/900 Series VBIOS hack version 0.5.3"
I tried adding
in grub.cfg and I think it made a slight difference - it seemed to show some messages as it shut down (with a power button press).
Sorry if this is a bit vague - but I have tried umpteen variations and the grey cells are not what they used to be.
