I have tried and failed to install every TrueOS release that came out in June, the latest being TrueOS-2017-06-23-x64-USB.img. They have all failed the same way - the bulk of the installation goes without a hitch until the very last screen that tells you the installation is complete, then as soon as I click 'Finish' I get a garbled display like in the attached screenshot and I'm forced into power cyclng my laptop.

TrueOS then boots into the first run setup program but I am unable to progress past the first screen which asks you to select a graphics driver. Regardless of if I click 'Skip' or I select one of the valid drivers for my GPU (intel, modesetting, VESA or scfb) then agree to testing it, I always get the same result - the same garbled mess of junk gets displayed on the screen and I have no other option than to poweroff.

I'm trying to install into a FreeBSD bootenv on a Haswell i7 with a HD4600 GPU. The most recent TrueOS install image that installs without issue that I have tried is from April, before the new GPU driver options were added.

I believe my probs installing recent releases of TrueOS are related to this ticket:

#1457

Newer versions of the TrueOS installer (since about May) seem to enforce the running of the Change Video Driver helper on first boot and I've just borked X on what was a perfectly running install by trying to use Change Video Driver from within PCDM.

It appears this has since been fixed, but please update if this still an issue on latest UNSTABLE and I'll reopen. Thanks!
