It detected monitor maximum size correctly ( 1920 x 1440 ) , but set the monitor mode to 1600 x 1200 while display was in 1920 x 1440 without screen border sliders . Click area for Back and Next was the bottom right corner of the screen which they were not visible . I wondered what will be result of install . By changing zoom values of monitor ( Installer was assuming that screen settings are conforming to each other ) I could manage to squeeze 1920 x 1440 screen size into 1600 x 1200 screen size ( setting of factory defaults of monitor did not help ) . Arrangement of monitor settings took longer than installation itself . Ideas that GUI is NOT better than text based installs is VALID . Thank you very much .
