Screen won't load with siduction kde, Radeon HD 7520G gfx card


I have been able to get the live version on a usb stick to run on safe gfx mod, but when I installed it to my hard drive, it loads up until after the grab screen comes up, then goes funky static colours. Is there any way to load the hard drive and install the drivers that way?

start it with the "vesa" bootcode?
I dont know siduction but I could imagine you start your pc, go into a grub prompt at boot, then you could edit prompt and include that "vesa" code?
This "vesa" driver should give you a bad graphic setup but enough good to see something at the screen. Then you could load the right drivers for your card?

according http://manual.siduction.org/en/cheatcodes-en.htm
gives the code xmodule=vesa or xmodule=radeon ?
I personally already had done it with knoppix and it was easy to go to the boot prompt, give it.
Bit I dont know siduction.
