Just an fyi, if anyone has run into this using the intel Atom boards...

Apparently the built in graphics, sometimes come up as a black screen
on first boot - after install of DIAL.

lspci -nn |grep VGA

00:02.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: Intel Corporation Atom
Processor D2xxx/N2xxx Integrated Graphics Controller [8086:0be2] (rev
09)

Apparently rev 09 is problematic - I have another machine with rev 0b

00:02.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: Intel Corporation Atom
Processor D2xxx/N2xxx Integrated Graphics Controller [8086:0be1] (rev
0b)

It works fine...

Found the solution here:

i added to /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf:
blacklist gma500_gfx

ran
sudo update-initramfs -u
