Attempted installing Macvidia drivers, now OSX86 shows "Must restart" screen

Well I needed updated drivers or something because I had dual monitors and one was flipped. There was no option to rotate the screen either. I went to macvidia.com and downloaded and used one of their installers. When I rebooted I received the screen with the exclamation point stating that I need to restart the machine. Is my osx86 fubar'ed, or can I fix this?

First you will have to remove your drivers:


- Boot in single user mode:

Press F8 while booting and enter the command "-s"


- Mount your HD:

/sbin/mount -uw /


- Browse to the target directory:

cd /System/Library/Extensions


- Delete your drivers:

sudo rm -R NVDA*

sudo rm -R ATI*

sudo rm -R GeForce*


- Reboot:



After that you will logon with no problems. Now you will have to find a working driver for your GFX. Try http://diabolik1605.com/DHF/iNVidia.html


Tell me if it worked for you.
