LiveDVD won't boot to a GUI in normal or safe mode. After the text mode the screen goes dark. Backlight is on but nothing is displayed. Meanwhile the DVD finishes booting and it is possible to restart the X server via Ctrl-Alt-Backspace and to restart the machine in the blind, but there's no display output at all. Playing with boot options yielded nothing.
CentOS 6.5 does boot to a GUI and seemingly works good. Mint 9 32-bit works fine as well.
