Linux Kernel Boot Black Screen of Death Freeze/Halt Solution

This happens on some systems due to a video issue with Intel Videocards, after you see the kernel load you may see almost immediately that you get a black screen.

The following kernel parameters usually solve it:

nomodeset i915.modeset=0 xforcevesa

some people just use "nomodeset" and others use "i915.modeset=0".  I think nomodeset may also do the same for each video driver so it may imply i915.modeset=0 anyway but I am not sure.
