If your kernel has it compiled in U can still see it load via /var/log/dmesg and to be sure check /boot/config-kernel file search for via or your chipset
in the worse scenario U made need to start your system off in rescue mode then compile a kernel after chroot
Maybe I'm mistaken, but it looks like this would need me to be able to boot the thing, which I cannot do. The Grub screen comes up, and I select the Linux boot option and that's when it gets to the screen about decompressing the Linux kernel and runs the Red Hat nash where it just stops.
How would I do a safemode boot in order to make fixes?
