I've been running my ClearOS 6.3 box for a while on an older Intel Atom and decided it was time to upgrade a little. I have run ClearOS since version 4 and find it easy to work with and a great community. I upgraded to a server board by ASRock called an D2550R which is an upgraded Intel Atom which now allows me to have more hard drives and 4gb of memory.

Every time I try to install I see the first screen of console after selecting options and then the screen blanks. It is apparent that the Atom graphics are just not capable of the installation. I have tried to use text on the command options to select a text base install, but this doesn't seem to work. I've tried low graphics option and specifying VGA=788. No dice. Any ideas on how to get this working with the newer ClearOS?

Thank you.

    Note also from an earlier post, it looks like the vga= (note the lower case) boot code has been deprecated and I wonder if it is no longer functioning. Can you try the alternative method from the link?

    Interesting - seems like a similar problem to what Brian is experiencing as detailed in his "Installation frustrations" thread - have you read it? Made a few suggestions there so will not repeat here - just read that thread. Have a very similar Atom board - an ASRock AD2700-ITX that had no problems installing 7.x after running 6.x for several years...
