I can't get my video card to work so ive been messing with it and i was reading to try installing drivers for a ati hd2400 so i was adding the device with efi studio and had it set it in .apple.boot.plist. when i reboot it goes bright white for a few seconds and then the computer restarts. is there a way through windows (my other hard drive) i can edit the boot.plist and reverse what i did in efi studio. i dont want to re install from scratch ive gotten too far

 

any help would be very very apprciated

Boot off the osx install dvd or what ever you used to install osx. When you see the top menu bar choose terminal then edit your Boot.plist in /Volumns/<your osx hdd>/Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.Boot.plist save the file then exit the installer. You can use this method to remove troublesome kext's as well
