What gfxchip type do you have? If Intel, you might be in for continued

This is an Intel board (915GAV). If that makes v11.3 problematic, then I

There are too many different Intel chips for me to keep track of which work OK or not. I just know widespread video trouble with Intel didn't exist in 11.2 like in 11.3.

can wait for v11.4, which I think is scheduled for release in March. That
can mean either returning to v11.1, once the booting is straightened out
(on the next reboot, I will check to see how v11.1 is behaving after all
this). Or I could continue to use v11.2 on the laptop, as I have been
doing these weeks.

Since you have so much freespace on the Seagate, and probably a much bigger display on the desktop system, you might consider putting the next 11.4 development milestone (3) on sda6 or sda8, and maybe even 11.2 on the other. If you do a 11.4 milestone and update from the factory-snapshot repo periodically, you'll wind up with 11.4 GA before its release gets announced. That would give you opportunity to complain about bugs soon enough that they might get fixed before whatever follows 11.4 is released. :-)
