During installation add boot options (nomodeset and other boot options)
After selecting language you arrive at the main menu of the installer.
Click on F6
At the boot menu screen the options are
Try Lubuntu without installing (in the desktop installer but not in
the alternate installer]
With the Install choice high-lighted press F6. (This option needs less
RAM than installing from 'Try Lubuntu')
A menu with a number of options appears. The option 'forcepae' is not
there, so press Escape to close the list.
Now a string of options is visible, often with 'quiet' or 'quiet splash
--' at the end. Add 'forcepae' to the string after the two dashes.
... quiet splash -- nomodeset
Press return, and the installation begins.
In an installed system, you should instead edit grub according to this link:
Entries on this line are added to the end of the 'linux' command
line (GRUB legacy's "kernel" line) for both normal and recovery modes.
It is used to pass options to the kernel.
9. GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash"
This line imports any entries to the end of the 'linux' line (GRUB
legacy's "kernel" line). The entries are appended to the end of the
normal mode only.
To view a black screen with boot processes displayed in text,
remove "quiet splash". To see the grub splash image plus a condensed
text output, use "splash".
Edit one of those entries (8. or 9.) to add nomodeset (one word), and
save the file
sudo nano /etc/default/grub
to make the change active (by putting it into /boot/grub/grub.cfg) and
