The most likely explanation I can come up with is that when XOrg is being 
set up it probes your hardware and that that somehow results in the 
broken display. This seems to me a bug in the XOrg driver or maybe the 
kernel driver for your graphics controller (or maybe your hardware is not 
detected correctly).

To complete your installation, I would suggest not selecting the desktop 
task during the installation. The problem should then be avoided and you 
can still install XOrg and Gnome/KDE after rebooting into the new system.

Reassigning this report to the XOrg team so they can furter investigate 
this issue with you.
