Installing Elementary OS Freya on a High-Resolution Screen Won't Display Correctly

When I tried to install Elementary OS on my high-res laptop with a 3840 x 2160 display, the installer displayed only about 25% of the screen. I could see the upper-left corner of the pretty background page and just the upper-left corner of the first prompt.

It seems the installer was sizing the screen right (big), but only displaying a small portion of the actual display. This meant I couldn't continue with installation because I couldn't answer the questions.

There is a workaround, however...

Fixing the Apple iPad, iPhone, and Touch's Problem with Displaying Data as Phone Numbers

I had a problem with a data heavy website not displaying numbers correctly when accessing the site from an iPad.

Specifically, numbers in a table would show up as blank on the iPad, but look great on every other browser. I thought it was a css issue, but the problem was that Safari was "helping" me by converting these number strings into links that, when you touch the screen, would ask if I wanted to add a new contact. That was my first hint. When I said, yes, I did, it took the number and tried to format as a phone number.

It turns out there isn't a way to turn this off in Safari or the iPad, but you can fix it by creating a meta tag...
