What kind of video card do you have? 

lspci in f11 should show you. 

Have you tried passing 'edid=off' to the boot line of the installer? 

Does your video card have DVI and VGA? If so, can you switch it to the
other one? 

Finally, try booting with 'xdriver=vesa' and see if that gets any

Good luck!
