10.2.1. Problems with Booting into the Graphical Installation
There are some video cards that have trouble booting into the graphical installation program. If the installation program does not run using its default settings, it tries to run in a lower resolution mode. If that still fails, the installation program attempts to run in text mode.
One possible solution is to use only a basic video driver during installation. You can do this either by selecting Install system with basic video driver
on the boot menu, or using the
boot option at the boot prompt. Alternatively, you can force the installer to use a specific screen resolution with the
boot option. This option may be most helpful for laptop users. Another solution to try is the
option to specify the driver that should be loaded for your video card. If this works, you should report it as a bug, because the installer failed to detect your video card automatically. Refer to Chapter 28, Boot Options
for more information on boot options.
