Installation went PERFECT. No problems. After restarting and logging in, I
am left with a light brown desktop color, NO menus, no icons, and a working
mouse. No key commands will result in anything happening on the screen. No
right click contextual menus, no nothing.
I am only using the onboard video graphics adaptor - no other video card is
installed. Everything appears fine during the installation, until after a
restart and login.
