7.96 (x86 Only) Oracle VM Server Installer Goes To Black Screen After Running /sbin/loader

While the Oracle VM Server Installer is booting, the installer runs /sbin/loader and then the screen goes black on some systems, such as the Dell Optiplex 755. This is a hardware issue related to the Intel 82Q35 Graphics Controller used on these systems.

The fix is to disable Intel VT-d (Intel Virtualization Technology for Directed I/O) functionality within the BIOS.
