ok 2 questions.

1. When I install any version with X1x00pcie ati driver then boot I get a black screen(Very Common) but if I boot from the dvd using rd=disk0s3 it boots fine and according to the properties it recognizes my ati x1600 with full support.

Booting from the hd is fine if i dont install that driver. WHY????? what is happening different when booting the DVD??? ive also tried -x -v and so on.


2. If I install without any graphics drivers, properties says standard display. it does show the manufacturer as ati but not the model. but it still says I have full support (qe,ci). I'm able to change reolutions at darwin "Graphics Mode"="1400X900X32" which i add to my boot.plist. but not in os(which I dont mind at all as i have no desire to change the resolution) so my question is, is my graphics card functioning without the need for extra drivers, and how can i test it?


I get mouse artefacts regardless of version, driver, resolution. but one thing at a time. also my chipset says ICH7-M but the drivers say ICH7-R, does that matter?
