   As you suggested, I changed the installer's

>> linux /install.amd/vmlinuz vga=788 --- quiet

by omitting "vga=178".  I am still getting the
row of thumbnails(?) with rest of screen black.

   It's an Intel NUC8i5BEK with Windows 10.
I've connected it to a Dell U2415 monitor
which is described as having a native
1920 by 1200 resolution.

   Thanks for any further ideas.  I had hoped
the "row of thumbnails at top of blank screen"
was a well-known, easily fixed, problem.
