My laptop has a
nomodeset problem, check the link for more info. Basically, I would need to add
nomodeset in grub in order to boot any linux distro.
If I want to use a distro, i'd need to install it, boot it, press
e on boot menu, add
nomodeset, and when it boots, i fix the grub menu forever and update it.
Today I'm looking to try a new debian distro, but i don't want to install it, my laptop is already dualbooted, i don't want to tripleboot it.
I don't like virtualbox or vmware, i'm not a fan of visualization, besides the distro that i'm trying doesn't play well on virtual machines.
All i want to do is to boot it from live cd, but the problem is that when you boot it from live cd, you aren't presented with a grub menu and you can't press
e to edit it, so there's no way for me to add
nomodeset, without that option, i'll never be able to see the screen.
How to edit grub when booting from a live cd?
