Debian-Installer Stretch Alpha 5 http://cdimage.debian.org/cdimage/stretch_di_alpha5/amd64/iso-cd/debian-stretch-DI-alpha5-amd64-netinst.iso won't install on Thinkpad X1 Carbon (4th Gen) (Type 20FB, 20FC). The console won't show anything after the initial welcome screen when the install actually start.

boot: install intel_pstate=no_hwp

I'll give full installation reports when I managed to finalize a Debian installation on this
