If you’re doing non-UEFI install then highlight the install option on the installer boot menu screen and press TAB.

You want to add “nomodeset” to the end of the line and then press ENTER to boot with nomodeset.

If you’re booting the UEFI installer, you highlight the install option in the installer boot menu and press E to edit. Repeat the change as above, but add it to the end of the line starting with “linux”. Press F10 to boot.
