Help with using darwin boot options

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Ok so i was smart enough to get this all working. The only thing i need to make it perfect for me is the resolution.


I boot up and press f8 to bring me to the darwin boot menu, i type in "?video" (to see what resolutions are possible) and i hit enter. darwin boots and nothing changed of course. So i just try "graphics mode" blah blah blah.

anyway my quiestion is... am i going about this correctly. Am i in the right area when i press f8? it says BOOT: and after i type it should i simply press enter? every little command ive put in there has done nothing.


(ps also i changed the boot file to make my resolution the same. i want 1280X1024 but it stays at 786)


my set up


1gig ram

ati 9600 xt



any clue why its not changing?
