That most likely will be this:
As there is no real way to pass X server configuration to anaconda
you have to do installation/upgrades in a text mode.  Once done
making up xorg.conf with "NoAccel" set will get you graphics if not
the greatest ones.  I do have a laptop where this was necessary and
it works.

Some machines may also require such treatment:
This time passing to anaconda 'clocksource=jiffies' is easy.
If your clock is going crazy and/or multiple strokes are required
before a key is recognized then you have a "candidate" on hands.
