It may need new modules added for the framebuffer video output; at one
point many years ago I had gotten a wandboard quad (also imx6, like the
cubox-i) to boot debian-installer on the video console, but then support
was enabled for video acceleration in the kernel and I never tracked
down which kernel modules were needed to enable in the installer to get
the framebuffer video back again...

It's no fun playing kernel module .udeb whack-a-mole :/

live well,
