By "the text mode loader" do you mean booting to runlevel 3?
You will probably find that anaconda put "acpi=off pci=nommconf" on the
grub kernel line. Try interrupting the boot and typing "a" when grub
starts and editing the line to delete those and "rhgb quiet" and adding
"3" for runlevel 3. If the boot still fails, reply to the list with the
last output you see before it hangs.
