Still, if Debian8 runs why does Debian9 fail?  Simple upgrade from 8
to > 9, nothing else changed.
Kernel changed from 3.16 to 4.9, big difference if you have the wrong
gfxchip:

I know, so I did not delete the 3.16 when the 4.9 was installed.  I
tried booting up with 3.16 but it made no difference.
Well, the server changed a lot too, from 1.16.4 to 1.19.2.

Until we know what gfxchip you have there's little or no more help to offer. In addition to 'lspci | grep VGA' and/or 'inxi -c0 -v1', before this is solved likely we'll need at least Xorg.0.log, plus dmesg and/or output from journalctl.
