Ubuntu – ValleyView Gen7 display does not work on Ubuntu 12.04.5

displaydriversgraphicsintel graphicsxorg

Installed 12.04.5 from the ubuntu-12.04.5-desktop-i386.iso image.

After installation, I was able to boot into the graphical user interface desktop every time.

Did sudo apt-get update, then sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-video-intel.

I cannot see the graphical user interface desktop after reboot. I was redirected to a terminal console every time after boot.

Hardware details from lshw -c video tool.
