The issue is that the configuration gui itself is using the intel
driver, and it has a bug on some chipsets which causes video to hang
after X closes. Try this, at the boot splash menu, select the option for
"VESA mode", then try selecting VESA later when it brings up the display
wizard. Does it work now?
