I found another situation where it hangs for Uyghur:
if you start an installation on a machine having no network connection,
it hangs at the point where this dialog should appear:
	Network configuration method:
 	From here you can choose to retry DHCP network autoconfiguration
	(which may succeed if your DHCP server takes a long time to respond)
	or to configure the network manually. Some DHCP servers require
	a DHCP hostname to be sent by the client, so you can also choose
	to retry DHCP network autoconfiguration with a hostname that you
	Retry network autoconfiguration
	Retry network autoconfiguration with a DHCP hostname
	Configure network manually, ${wifireconf}
	Do not configure the network at this time

However, this dialog does not appear, it hangs forever on a blank screen.

So, it's apparently a more wide-spread issue.
