That's right - also more painfully vesa doesn't support xv for video IIRC.

"Blanking out" could be a feature of your monitor reacting to video data
that it objects to rather than anything more complicated.  Maybe set up
your monitor and resolution using


while using vesa and try again with radeon now you know you can use the
runlevel 3 grub method instead of recovery boot.

If it fails again, examine /var/log/Xorg.0.log on the next reboot into
runlevel 3.

Gilboa's plan is worth trying too, unfortunately the manufacturer binary
drivers are the only things that will work on some video chip /
motherboard / BIOS combinations.
