I have rewritten the detection scheme to try and handle sandy/ivy bridge, and there are a few caveats. This should be regarded as alpha, and I will try and support these, but if it becomes to huge a goose chase it may be dropped.
What is required for this on lucid, is a kernel upgrade either to natty or oneiric depending... and a bunch of new drivers etc. This all happens automatically, but... it takes a very long time, much longer than a normal first boot for either MD or Hybrid... and you are greeted only by a black screen. Just, leave it be. Interrupting this breaks things terribly. It will eventually reboot.
For ivy bridge, I believe it will come alive eventually, but be terribly slow/sluggish due to the fact that a driver is not actually being loaded. The kernel is just giving raw support. I would like for someone to help me by confirming that this is the case. lsmod | grep intel should only reveal a bunch of sound modules, and lsmod | grep i9 will probably come up empty. IF that is the case, please add modprobe i915 to /etc/init.d/a0start_avwizard after CheckVideoDriver and report success or failure, and confirm that this is in fact the case.
