You will probably have to trick it.

Get to your failed to setup x screen and ctrl + alt + f2 or ssh if you can.
Code: [Select]
sudo su
apt-get install xserver-xorg-video-intel
(probably already installed)
Code: [Select]
ls /etc/X11/xorg.c*Now whatever pops up (either xorg.conf or xorg.conf.pluto.avwizard, or both) open an editor and change the Driver from "vesa" to "intel".
Then:
Code: [Select]
killall -9 whiptail; killall -9 AVWizard_Run.shGive it a minute or so and see if it starts blinking and avwiz pops up. If not then:
Code: [Select]
/usr/pluto/bin/AVWizard_Run.sh
and it will probably light up. Let me know please.

Additionally if after AVWizard (or during) it dumps to the KDE desktop
Code: [Select]
echo "/bin/false" > /etc/X11/default-display-manager
And reboot after after AVWizard completes.
