Thank You for the recommendation, awokd! 

I did not find the time to try that out. Will try everything again with the 
most recent release. And if there will be issues will post a new question 
thread.

  See
CONFIG_DRM_I915_ALPHA_SUPPORT
or i915.alpha_support module
parameter
  to enable support in this
kernel version, or check for
kernel updates.

This is enabled by default on Qubes 4.0, but I'm not sure if that's the
case for 3.2. That could be why video was so slow on 3.2. (On a side note,
why is this Linux driver still alpha after it's been around for years?)
Everything else looks fine. I see DMAR gets set up so hardware
virtualization should work. Didn't notice any obvious problems in the Xorg
logs.

Look for the "i915.preliminary_hw_support=1" entries in
https://pastebin.com/u8z6nWV5 for an example of where you should add them
to 3.2 if they aren't there. I agree with the other suggestion made
earlier, wait for rc4 then try 4.0 again too.

Try "sudo journalctl -b > journal.log". Review and redact any sensitive

Thank You for the help, donban! 

I can not find a kern.log or dmesg. I did find the Xorg log files. (This is all 
on the Fedora that I recently installed on this same hardware). Xorg Log files 
attached.

It does not seem a very useful log. Send something like kern.log or
dmesg. Also Xorg.X.log since your problem is starting Xorg during the
installation.

Managed to install Fedora on this hardware and here is the boot.log that I can 
find in /var/log

Does that help to understand the issue?

This was a /tmp log of installation process. Not sure that dom0 as such is 
available during the installation.

The setup is not a laptop. It is a desktop see HW details below. Will try to 
get the Debian's boot log.
