Another option is to start the install with 'linux xdriver=vesa' to get
the installation to use the vesa driver instead. If you wanted to assure
that the installer used any particular driver, you can add that driver
The gray screen usually indicates poor xdriver detection. Specifying a
particular driver may prevent the failure.
