Same thing on my ThinkPad X1 Tablet. My graphics card according to Windows Device Manager is Intel HD Graphics 515, although I'm not sure that that's the problem. Checked /var/log for the X log, don't remember now if X recognized and loaded the drivers for the card. It did say something about Screen0 being absent, which I find strange since I didn't have that problem with the previous versions of Ghost.

If I'm not mistaken the graphics card on your TP is the FireGL 5200.

I'll investigate a bit further and post here when I do manage to get X running, might even re-download the image. I've already tried writing the image I have a second time.

In case you're wondering how to view the log file, use ghostbsd as login, blank password. Then type in, without terminating with the Enter key yet,

less /var/log/X

and hit the [Tab] key immediately after the X (no space bar! -- apologies if you already know this, can't assume other users' levels of proficiency with the shell). I suspect you'll find something similar to the error on my TP regarding Screen0
