The boot takes like a minute, after that, it will go to a black screen with a blinking pointer. It doesn't react to any stroke. Ctrl Alt F1 or F2 ... won't work.
there is no GRUB.
Even PrintScreen+AltGr+B doesn't work but PrintScreen+AltGr+O does.
In the middle of the boot I get like 5 seconds where I can switch to tty1, but before I get the chance to fully type my credentials, the system will go to the black screen.
I would like to find a combination to force the system to boot on the shell and stops trying to run X because I think this is where the system hangs.
Any idea how do I recover? (I kept the old drivers installation)
PS: I am aware of all the similar posts here, but no one tells how to just get to the shell when Ctr Alt F1 is stuck.
