Hi Everyone,


I'm running a Dell Inspiron 17R 5721 and I have managed to gradually get to the point of the bootloader working and my system will boot but only with -x as a boot flag.  I also can only use an external screen to view my login.


I have tried all sorts and I can't work out where to go from here and would really appreciate any help to try and get it up and running.  I feel like I'm so close but I just don't know what to do to get the final things running smoothly.


I have used myhack to get the system installed and run ##### after installation as myhack didn't work natively to get it to boot from the hard drive.  Is there anythign else I need to run to stop it only starting in safe mode?  I can also run a non safe mode boot with verbose and show where it freezes if that helps.
