Comments/Problems: Default install hangs in Graphical menu screen. Black dots show in first two rows, probably showing kernel/initrd load progress.

Steps to reproduce:
Boot from USB. And press [Enter] for Default install.

When navigate to Advanced/Expert install, it shows menu screen after kernel loading:
Undefined video mode number: 314
Select video mode: 0

After that Expert install works as expected.
