Angry Install and testing woes.

I thought I would give deepin a try as I had seen some very favourable reviews. However, it was a very frustrating experience.
Attempt 1) d/l .iso. dd to a USB thumbdrive.
result = Boots up, but then freezes, need to cold boot.
md5 sum checked etc.
Used opensuse imagewriter and unetbootin, same result.
Tried to use a VirtualBox. Booted (very slowly) to live environment. Tried then to install to vBox. First attempt froze/hung. Second attempt seemed OK until first reboot. This rebooted to 'live' session, I guess from from the virtual CD, Not from the new virtual HDD installed. I think deepin needs a lot of work before it becomes a usable desktop for mass use.
I have a nVidia GPU. Is there a tweak I can apply to the USB image?

So, I tried again. And succeeded. I used unetbootin. On boot I tapped down to "Try to Install Deepin" I pressed TAB, deleted everything after caspar and added nomodeset. The live USB then starts and runs. Do not be afraid of the (only) option, "Which language do want to install?" It does not 'install', it will run as live. Mods/devs may wish to alter this.
