v4 v5 7 7 I see the intel_extreme driver reads the monitor's EDID info (i.e. monitor screen resolutions and product info) then the screen goes black from that point. If I disable the monitor, reboot, wait till disk activity finishes, then reconnect - I have a 1024x768 @ 60Hz display with the installer GUI options and I can either install or go to the desktop.
