If no xorg.conf exists in /etc/X11 create it using Xorg -configure command
Once /etc/X11/xorg.conf exists, edit it and uncomment the AccelMethod line within the Intel device section so it reads
Option "AccelMethod" "sna"
Then restart and hopefully black window issue is resolved for now, pending a bug fix on the Intel driver.

login as root there..
then enter telinit 1
when it has completed switching to runlevel 1, you can use the Xorg -configure
It will create xorg.conf.new in the current directory.
Edit this for the sna setting, and copy it to /etc/X11/xorg.conf
Restart the GUI with telinit 2
Hope that helps.
