stops during verbose on VRAM

 

i was told to delete the ATI Radeon drivers

 

I logged in with the unix terminal

 

went to system extensions

 

i see all the ATI drivers

 

mine is not listed

 

i have a ATI Radeon 9600 Pro 128

 

I was also told to delete them all then reboot and it should work

 

However when i try the command = rm ATIRadeonDVDriver.bundle

 

it says file or directory not found

 

how can i delete them???

 

and does anyone know if this will work

 

using the MAC OSX Tiger Ghost image

This is what I did (read from some other post somewhere). Move all the ATI files in /System/Library/Extensions to another dir. I created a backup dir and moved them there.

 

Reboot and voila... works

You could try the following command:

 

cd /System/Library/Extentions
mkdir /System/Library/Extentions.bak
for i in `ls -1 | grep ATI`; do mv $i ../Extentions.bak/; done

Then reboot and see what happens. If it still doesn't boot, you're removing the wrong graphics driver. Can you boot to safe mode?
