Black Screen On Update Help!!!

Question

My installation of Niresh 10.9 works flawlessly. When I installed Combo Update for 10.9.3 it booted to a black screen which indicated to me it was a graphics issue. My install requires no boot flags at start up. So with the black screen I tried entering -v -x GraphicsEnabler=No. It didn't work. I tried -f -s and SkipIntelGfx= Yes since I have Intel HD. But nothing seems to work. I read on here something about downloading the updates individually but even when I tried to update to 10.9.1 I get the above result. If anyone has any solution I would appreciate it. Thanks!

Niresh, Thank you so much for the help. Unfortunately it didn't work. I followed your guide but after the software update I could not boot in single user mode to remove the graphics kexts that the software update must have put back in. When I boot in single user mode I get a wait for system mapper error (See attached image). If I boot with any other flags I get the black screen. I am assuming that since I have not removed the graphics kext after update that I am in the same position I was when I started. So how so I get around this error?

this is totally a Graphics error due using patched kext ,you need to find some to delete all of this using Terminal or Single User mode ,

 

or you need to install it again ,

 

one more way just make bootable USB using Bootdiskutility then try to boot with your partition (this is just a try im not much sure )
