I finally managed to get booted and install the intel drivers necessary!!! Although, my only issue now is that I can't log off (goes to black screen) to edit the root to say "acpi_osi=linux." Since my laptop's fan doesn't really run higher than medium, although there is a chance me setting the processor to Dynamic had something to do with it.

Thanks for the help-i shall now mark this thread as resolved/solved
