Stuck on Gearlock screen. Little help please - DarkMatter stuck

Bootng into os doesnot works.

Have tried with and without kernel optimization flags and fixes too.

Try using the partition repair option on recovery mode menu.
I did tried partition repair. It said partition was ok. I tried fresh install. But it again stucks at same point. Text appears and then screen goes black and again text appears and that blinking underscore freezes. I assume it is error with graphics. Driver or hardware issue.

i did a drive format. so i am sure all was gone. although when i reinstalled, i unchecked Gearlock to not to install it. but it was surprisingly there as dark matter started to boot for the first time. should it be there ?
i though may be skipping the gearlock part might help. but it was installed even while unchecked.

Windows installer won't remove gearlock for you if the distribution you're installing has it integrated. Although you can delete the gearlock file from your installation directory but remember that DarkMatter won't be functional without it.

So i guess i'm out of luck then. I tried with different kernel and latest gearlock . but still it stucks there. any way to make the os run without looking for graphics? i tried NOGFX=0 using "e" for edit when selecting how to start OS. but that blinking underscore stops anyway.

Have you tried updating mesa too? BTW, what was your GPU?
