No it doesn't start the X server at all on the first boot. It hangs to 
the first boot graphical part where initial users get created etc. I did 
several reboot attempts that did all hang. I.e. I saw the login manager 
only once after adding the entry to the xorg.conf and completing the 
second stage of the install.

Also, I made several installs as I'm not homing to the system before the 
final release and therefore I try to make a lot of testing. For some 
reason, I managed to fix it by adding the "intel" only on my first 
install. On the following reinstalls, it was always starting X server 
configuration which ended to the blank screen and when rebooting in 
single user mode, the Driver "intel" was missing again. I'm not sure 
what I did differently. If "# mount -o rw tank1/*/* /" (I looked the 
tank name with "mount -p") was not enough to make persistent changes to 
the files. Or if there was something else I did differently, since I 
didn't pay full attention on my first install. My experience is mostly 
from Windows so finding my way around is still a little experimental.
