F1 should bring you to the output of the installer. A shame you
cannot read it to see what is happening.
Try heading over to f2 where you can open a terminal for
troubleshooting. Test your network from there. Try to ps and see
what is going on.
If it helps, I can get to a terminal with the rescue mode. I did
that and updated [apt-get update && apt-get autoclean && apt-get
dist-upgrade && apt-get autoremove]. When I boot, the system freezes
at [ 8.824009] [<c010253c>] cpu_idle+0x19/0xcb
Help and advice, please.
