After that there is some color garbage on screen as if graphics mode is about to be initialized, then all fans are quickly ramping up as if system's ACPI module gets re-initialized and then screen goes black and system just hangs.

Any thoughts?
Chris, thank you, the nomodeset option works for me!
I'm running custom made PC with Xeon E5-2699v4 on Asrock X99 motherboard with a lot of hardware (RAID controller, 10Gb NIC, NVME disks, Radeon GPU).
Glad to hear, please mark this thread as solved.
