To answer myself: use xforcevesa. At least on Ubuntu-derived
distros that works. In short: at the blue boot menu, type <Tab>
and delete the "quiet splash --" and type "xforcevesa" instead.
X will then use the vesa driver. For me the screen then was
seemingly zoomed in on a small area of the desktop: moving
the mouse made a huge cursor flit across the screen. But
after a Ctrl+Alt+F1 and Ctrl+Alt+F7, it produced a normal
desktop. I could then install it. And it was so smart to
also there use the vesa driver without me having specified
that in any way.
