Oland card boots ok on Debian Jessie and Ubuntu-Mate 16.04
All 3 boot ok with a Radeon HD 6570 card .

I see... So there is little to do, except to change the graphics card? Ubuntu-Mate 16.04 indeed works ok also for me.

Before I read your message, I tried a third new installation, so that I let the installer also to download upgrades during installation. This time I got this message while trying to boot:

Kernel panic - not syncing : VFS : Unable to mount root fs on unknown block (8,21)
Rebooting in 180 seconds.

No Debian Jessie should work with most Radeon card .
Try booting your third installation again with a rootdelay of 15

Whoops... I had forgotten to change the disk id in my script, it tried to boot from a non-existent partition!

This corrected, the third installation stopped at the same point as the first:

([OK] Started Update UTMP about System Runlevel Changes
_ (cursor was here blinking here)

What does that command mean, what is it trying to do...?

It should work but still cant rule out your video card as the problem.
I have tested it with am OEM Radeon HD6570 and an ASUS R7240 (R7240-2GD3-L) 2GB DDR3 .
If you have another video card and you are willing to test please do.

I will try a Debian DVD install with my Oland card and see if It works for me.

Thanks! Could you please try it without allowing upgrades via net during installation...? That would show whether the very basic installation works.
