Good day Michael,

I do use saved state on that machine and it did start to a black screen. 
I did a complete boot and it was the same, nothing would show, just 
black, not even a tty window. I turned off 3D and booted into a tty 
windows and installed the GAs, turned 3D back on and no change just 
black screen. As for the changeset I showed, I have no idea what is 
causing the issue but it looks like it is host side code.

Reverted to the previous build (51242) and it works great.

Attaching a different log.
