    Default No Display after 42.2 > 42.3 Upgrade

    Downloaded 42.3 ISO to bootable USB stick. Upgrade performed flawlessly until the final operation configuring Grub2 ...

    Code:
    Execution of command "[["/usr/sbin/grub2-install","--target=i386pc","--force","--skip-fs-probe","/dev/sda"]]" failied
    However i found the post here that says this is not a problem as system boots normally after the upgrade .... which i can confirm!!

    But, after displaying Grub menu and boot splash screen the system finishes with Black Displays (mouse pointer is visible and operational).. I have dual boot box with three displays ... they all worked fine with 42.2 and windows but will not display following 42.3 upgrade. Windows still works however.

    I have tried "Advanced options for 42.3" with same result ....

    nVidia under 42.2

    Can somebody help me with this please.

    UPDATE:

    Okay ... so if i select "Advanced Options for 42.3" and choose the previous Kernel version (4.4.104-18-44-default) then the GUI is displayed on the monitors!!

    However, choosing the new kernel just produces a black screen with a live mouse pointer.

    Can somebody lead me from here?

    Thanks

    SOLUTION:

    Boot system under old kernel > yast > software > search 'nvidia' > force upgrade to later version of drivers available.

    384.11-3.1 (Installed)
    390.48-6.1 (available)

    Reboot using latest kernel!
