no display during installation
I wanted to install OpenIndiana Built 148 on the system based on ZOTAC H55-ITX WiFi board.
In order to do so first I had to disable the legacy usb support in the bios, otherwise the whole installation would just hang before even starting.
But then I could only go as far as typing the text session's username & password.
After that there was no display at all on my monitor.
I wonder if this has got something to do with the board I'm using.
Any help will be appreciated. If you need more info just drop me a mail.

I'm encountering this same issue. Although, I'm using a Zotac ION-G-E. It's the craziest thing. I found that I can take an HDD out of a known good install and put it in this box and it will boot, no problem. It's just that the display stops at the oi_148 Oracle 1983-2010 banner. I thought maybe it switched to the HDMI out, so I tried that and same problem. If I boot with -v, the display stops after it initializes the keyboard (PS2) or ohci (USB Keyboard):

I miss everything from this point on:

I tried unplugging the keyboard, same issue.
I'm thinking of re-enabling nwam on the known good install and booting it in the Zotac box so I can further troubleshoot. Let me know if I can assist in any way.
