Don't know, if I am better in this respect, but here we go :-)
(also, not a native english speaker here)


Regarding the mentioning of "black screen":
I seem to remember that there were also reports, that people had a garbled
display instead of a black screen, so we should way something like

"In some cases, a successful installation can still end up in a black
screen or garbled display when rebooting into the installed system. If that happens, some
workarounds can be tried to log in anyway"

-----------------

"Once logged in into the installed system, it is possible to automate
the detection of missing firmware, and to perform the require steps to
enable them following this procedure:"

require -> required

-----------------

"<itemizedlist>
  <listitem><para>Pass the <code>nomodeset</code> option on the kernel
  command line. This might help boot in a <quote>fallback
  graphics</quote> mode.</para></listitem>"

boot in > booting into (?)
