Do you have one of the early 1.75 models? I get a similar install
glitch on one of my early 1.75s. Somewhere near the end of the install
the screen goes blank if I haven't poked the touchpad lately.
Would you mind filing a bug about the moodle login at
It will be our first public bug reported to the project :) After hours
and hours working late into the night and talking to each other.... We
will finally have feedback from a potential user!

Manage to connect a bunch of XO to test. Tested two registration and was able to autologin to Moodle on OS 12.1.0 but not on a 13.1.0.
