Well, not much help here I'm afraid.
Just to confirm that this graphics adapter is indeed supported:

And that there is no required patch kit (there is one for 5.1):

Why not just try a simple serial line install on a (logging) terminal emulator?
IMHO that's not much of an inconvenience for a 'once in a life time' process. It involves fewer things to go wrong and may have a more clear log / traceback is something does go wrong.

fwiw,
Hein.

Hi

Thank you gays for your help ,i think that it's hardware problem , the graphic cards may cause problem.
