Hello,


I have a Toshiba Satellite P105. Did the upgrade. Everything went smooth until the reboot. After that the deep black. I am suspecting Nvidia driver. "F" key maneuver brings a flash of the booting process. That is quickly followed by a mosaic screen and a numb computer.

Other than nuking the system and re-installing 10.10 any constructive idea?

Welcome to UF
Have you tried the nomodeset boot option? Or others.
Have a look here for details

Thank you for the quick reply.

I was able to boot in low graphic mode. I don't mind that because I think that my Nvidia card is past its prime. However, I do not know how to make this mode permanent.

Solved!

Forget it.

Lesson to learn: if ain't broken don't fix it. Reformat the system with 10.10.
