2019-01-23 10:10:14 -0600 marked best answer Fedora 28 Server install failure

My goal is to install Fedora 28.1.1, on an Intel S1200SPLR server with a Xeon E3-1275 v5 CPU, 16GB of 2133 Unbuffered ECC DDR4, Intel HD P530 integrated HD Graphics, and a 480GB SSD, all components approved by the server board manufacturer.

I am using the directly connected monitor on the VGA port; IPMI is not available to me.

First, I tested with Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS, which installed AOK from its checksummed LiveUSB. There was no lag.

Next, I tried Fedora Server 28.1.1, from a LiveUSB generated by the Fedora LiveUSB Writer. The terminal window went blank shortly after booting from its checksummed LiveUSB with:
[ OK ] Started Show Plymouth Boot Screen.
[ OK ] reached target Paths.
[ OK ] started Forward Password Requests to Plymouth Directory Watch.

and it stalls.

I got the same result with Fedora Workstation 29.1.2. I repeated the attempts with an ISO written onto different flash drives with Rufus.

Pressing e in GRUB2 to replace quiet with nomodeset did not help. Neither did adding inst.text, vga=790, or vga=793 (ref. http://blog.fpmurphy.com/2009/09/proj...). Every time, Server 28 stalled at fb: switching to mgag200drmfb from EFI VGA.

Then, to try to get some information about what's happening, I tried Fedora Spin Workstation 29.1.2 with Cinnamon, having remembered something about GNOME problems. It installs, but Cinnamon repeatedly crashes every minute, both in LiveUSB mode and after installation and reboot. Cinnamon reports it is rendering in software mode. The 28.1.1 Xfce Spin (which uses lightdm} installs and runs OK, which does suggest something in GNOME is trouble

I opened a terminal, and copied dmesg for your review. The output of lspci-k is also linked.

I have also, as per https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/red_hat_enterprise_linux/6/html/deployment_guide/blacklisting_a_module, created /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf which contains one line

blacklist mgag200

and rebooted, but lspci -k still shows the Matrox in use.

Again, my objective is to install Fedora 28.1.1 Server, and the Workstation installs are just an attempt to gather information for troubleshooting.---

I also edited /etc/default/grub to remove quiet rhgb and replaced that with inst.text then ran grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg and rebooted. When I did, I opened up grub with e and found its next to last line read

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="resume=/dev/mapper/fedora-swap rd.lvm.lv-fedora/root rd.lvm.lv=fedora/swap rhgb quiet"

I changed that to

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="resume=/dev/mapper/fedora-swap rd.lvm.lv-fedora/root rd.lvm.lv=fedora/swap inst.text"

but the problem persisted.
