I know this is old thread but I've experienced exact same issue. This is for someone else like me
Just acpi set off on grub. Everything will display nicely there after. Additionally you can use external VGA monitor for installation process. After the installation set your grub /etc/default/grub as follows and update the grub(sudo update-grub)
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash nomodeset acpi_osi=\"Linux\""
