    Update: I reinstalled, this time without encrypting the drive and it reboots fine without changing anything.
    Still not a good match yet then...

    If you could post the results of this-
    Code:
    lspci -vnn | grep -i VGA
    That would tell me the video hardware you have and I could recommend a good match in drivers...

    EDIT--Saw your edited update. AS the OP, please mark this thread as "Solved."
