Can't boot installer because of EFI video mode

Rodolfo Gouveia
Hi all,
I had issues with booting the installer on this 2011 samsung laptop NP300V3A.
The screen would turn all garbled when the boot messages started to appear.
5.8 was fine but the releases after had this problem.

I was able to fix this by following the messages here[1].
Basically setting the gop video to 640 instead of the default 1024 did
it for this model.

Hope this helps somebody else :-)

Cheers,
rodolfo
