EDIT: I HAVE FIGURED IT OUT...
as above change just the nomodeset so the line reads
text splash i915.modeset=1 vga=791
I am having exactly the same problem here as well. I am running Intel HD Graphics and to be more specific my lspci reads:
Intel Corporation Core Processor Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 02)
I have tried all of the above to no avail what so ever!
Anybody know of anything else to try?
