Sure it will install fine in failsafe boot. I’ve done it before on previous versions because of iffy graphics chips like my savage chip.
Backup just like normal during a live session. Reboot back using safe graphics. Run the installer.

Before you install, run the live iso again using the default boot choice and add this cheat at the menu.
I got this info from the arch wiki. It *might* help

antiX with runit - leaner and meaner.November 9, 2017 at 2:52 pm #2225ModeratorBrian Masinick::
Good info anti! I’m gonna try that on my system at home and see if I can use either that code or something similar – and I’ll check the arch wiki to see what this is all about. I WAS having issues where I was having to boot into failsafe mode. Can’t remember if I fixed ’em or not, but if not, I’ll see what these codes (and any others) are about and give it a try. Thanks!
In my case, my system is a Dell Inspiron 5558. Prior releases of antiX never had any issues at all. But I was messing around with the boot loader and I think it messed ME up! 😉 Last time I was on, all seemed to be well, but if I’m still encountering GUI (run level 5) issues, I’ll see if a specific boot code helps my situation too.

adding i915.enable_execlists=0 does nothing
