try to configure display.

Boot to a shell (simply add runlevel=3 at the end of the kernel line).

login

#su

#setup

or edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf in vim

#su
#vim /etc/X11/xorg.conf
change the line

driver nvidia

to

driver nv

or

driver vesa

(you need to press alt + i to insert anything
esc to stop inserting
:w to save
:q to quit the editor)

'edit' is not a cmd; he just means use an editor to do .... usually it'll be vi or vim, as per his example.
