In the past I have had success using nomodeset followed by either 
"video=vesafb" or "vga=XXX" for a vesa mode. These have the advantage 
(if they work) of (a) not changing the basic config so a better driver 
can be easily tested, and (b) being easily by boot line edit tested 
before making any changes which need file edits.
