    Yes. It explains a lot. It says also:
    Once the installation is complete and you've booted it the first time, examine /etc/default/grub. Likely nomodeset will be included on the GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT= line. It will severely handicap performance of whichever desktop or window manager you use, as it is intended to be a troubleshooting parameter.
    I'm just wondering because Rescue is a troubleshooting tool, wouldn't nomodeset as a troubleshooting parameter, be appropriate? Probably there is a good reason it's not default. But it's not obvious to me. Is it maybe because on some hardware nomodeset would cause Rescue to fail?

    Rescuing isn't just for video trouble. Putting video into crippled mode can unnecessarily impede or block other troubleshooting procedures.
