Nothing out of the ordinary, if anything, I leave all the defaults on.
Although it does this when I select VESA, when I boot default, I get a black
screen on all terminals and I can only force a reboot.

I am going to try this with verbose logging and post anything out of the
ordinary (hoping I do not end up with a blacked terminals). The other
alternative is to download BETA-3 and see if that works.


Of course, you might discount this possibility, but remember that one in a
million chances happen 99% of the time.
