Someone else claimed the option helped him during X problems for Intel 
810/815 class cards. I never passed the parameter and instead did a text 
install with 'linux text' at the time. Upgrading with linux text does 
not prevent you from installing GUI software as some suppose by the 
name. It allows you to select all packages with dialog boxes in order to 
select the options and packages during install.

I am uncertain as to which stage you are reaching during the install 
attempt. Are you making it through the install up to the point where you 
can see the installer screen? (I made it up to selecting an upgrade and 
the failure was due to an exception.

Have you attempted to do a Linux text install to see if you can 
configure X post-install?

Also if you do get to where you install the system somewhat, there is an 
install log within the the /root directory for the install.log (Mine was 
an upgrade attempt and was zero bytes within the upgrade.log)

I filed bug below.

Also I included an attachment containing logs sent out the serial port 
for the installer kernel and logs which were in the /tmp directory 
during the install and when the exception occurred.
