Could be hole lot of things.  Most likely something is weird with your BIOS or
motherboard.  The CPU as such shouldn't be a problem.  When you say "hung",
does it load the kernel and initrd images at all?  Does the kernel 
starts?  Are
you getting kernel panic?  Is initrd stuff freaking out?  Installer 
hungs?  They
are all on different levels, and might point to different things going wrong.
