    Have you tried pressing F1 (for more boot options) and passing noapic or acpi=off to the installer?
    There are two major products that come out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX. We don't believe this to be a coincidence.

    Thanks for that
    after a bit of experimenting with the usb plugs I finally got the setup to start
    it seems that one of the usb ports was overloaded with toomany connections.
