I use Kernel 4.7 for the installation but later Kernel4.1.27 for booting.
And I must use my old Xorg.conf with Radeon (amdgpu dont work!) from my Lubuntu16.04 Partition.
With this little work I can boot now into the Desktop and go a Screen with Mesa-Software-Renderer.
Oh Graphic is R7 250X
With Kernel4.7 i got always KernelPanic.

It boots and runs with 4.7, but I also gave 4.1.27 a try and it does seem somewhat faster and more responsive. Perhaps, now that I have a working Deb8-gcc4.9, I will do a rebuild of 4.7 which will be custom to my X1000 and see if any improvements are made.
I may also try a reinstall of Deb8 to include a desktop using the NI initrd.
Excellent! Just plain slick.
Many thanks for testing! Could you also please test Debian Stretch with the stable longterm kernel 4.1.28?

It boots just fine and things work. However, if the computer sets idle for between 3 and 6 minutes it just locks up and the only cure is to hard reset.
I have disabled the screensaver, and cron's but to no avail. Perhaps it is due to the Stretch distro still being under early development. 4.1.27 still works just fine.
By sitting idle I mean simply not using the kbd or mouse. Using apt or even playing a video is not a cure. The system logs show nothing so I suspect the kernel is just going bye-bye.
Others may get different results.
