I bought a new motherboard (ASUS F2A85-M LE) which has an integrated graphics
chip "AMD Radeon HD 7000".
Installation of 12.3 RC1 did not work directly because after starting the
Installation option in the boot menu the screen went blank and I could not see
anything.

What I needed to do was to power-reset the machine and boot with "no modeset"
option. This at least brought me to the textmode installation and told me that
Xorg could not start.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.
2.
3.


Expected Results:
Either
- do not fail to start Xorg
or
- when Xorg fails, bring me directly to the textmode without the need to
power-cycle
