I'm on Sony Vaio laptop; I booted from USB and tried elementary which worked well. I then installed using the entire drive with the "Download updates while installing". The install finishes and I click the "Restart" button. Then I get a black screen.
It's actually a terminal, but I can see one letter at a time in top left of the screen. I tried reboot which worked.
I tried installing without internet and had the same results. I haven't been able to install it. It's odd that I could use elementary OS when booted from USB, but it wouldn't work via install.
I tried replacing
quiet splash with
nomodeset which ended up with the same result.
