Well ... for what ever it's worth ... this had absolutely nothing to do with any core Joomla files. Apparently you just can't use MySQLi when installing Joomla, which is the default option at least on my server. It appears to work fine if I reinstall using MySQL, just not MySQLi. Not sure why. According to what I've seen online;

The MySQLi extension comes equipped with many benefits that compliment as well as improve those that were provided by its predecessor, MySQL. There are a few that are more prominent than others. These features that are meant to enhance the functionality of the MySQL (as well as provide an update to the database manager as a whole) are an object oriented interface, support for statements that have been previously prepared, support for a variety of statements, support for any kind of transaction that takes place, an enhanced level of debugging support, and an enhanced level of server support that is already embedded in the infrastructure of the database.

Wow, never seen error in that place before.
1) can you show us screenshot with issue.
2) Have you checked all Technical requirements before installation of SPPB 3 ?
3) This error looks like from Joomla core files, it's not from our software

components/com_config/config.php on line 28

please check on Official Joomla forum first.

Not sure why

I guess you have to talk with Hosting support.
According to stats over 70% of users Install Joomla with MySQLi set by default.
Yes, without any problems.

Might indeed be something related to the hosting environment. I removed the installation from my shared hosting environment (which again worked as a MySQL install) and reinstalled on a dedicated box as MySQLi and didn't appear to have any problems. To be fair, the dedicated box installation was utilizing the template 'package' which already had everything in it (as opposed to installing the Joomla installer and then the page builder), however it didn't seem to have any issues when I added my credentials to it. Just an FYI.
