I made a list of valid boot parameters that I found in a Google search and
tried various combinations. I find that either
(or both) allow the installer to start. I cannot explain why these
seemingly very different parameters both work, nor can I explain why only
the installer needs them. I did not do an install, but I did take it
several screens into the GUI.
