When you see text about grub during boot, press Esc.
On the list of boot options, hit Tab to edit the Linux Mint entry.
Arrow down to the line ending with "quiet". After "quiet", add i915.modeset=0.
Hit F10 to boot.
If that works, after you install you'll have to change it permanently.

This must override the setting in /etc/modprobe.d/i915-kms.conf, which has modeset=1. So probably changing that would work too.
So, those are my findings. Not sure if it warrants a bug report.
