Sure. It's a Asus DSEB-DG motherboard with dual Xeon E5440 CPUS. 8 GB RAM. All
the storage is via a 3Ware 9650SE RAID controller.
I didn't provide the details because it was strange that the installation
failed at the same point regardless of the booting method I used. It felt like
some basic mistake or mis-setting in the OS. But hey, I've been wrong before.
I'm in the process of downloading a whole new DVD image even though the
current image passes the SHA1 checksums.
