The installer does not really do anything. The problem is more likely to 
be in the kernel.

One option you can try is 'fb=false', but that is unlikely to work.

You have a better chance of success by trying to explicitly set the video 
mode for the framebuffer driver your graphics controller uses.
That would be 'video=<fb driver>:<settings>', or maybe
'<fb driver>.<option>=<value>'.

You'll have to check the kernel's Documentation/fb directory and possibly 
google around a bit for the correct settings.
