Does the system have a Hyperthreading CPU? Have you tried both single processor (labelled UP or -up in the Grub boot screen) and multiprocessor (SMP) kernels? I would've thought the fact it runs the installer implied the system is capable of booting a linux kernel. So it's possibly something different between the minimal kernel/initrd the installer uses and the full blown kernel/initd booted after the install. Will.
