    Processor AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 4600+, 2400 Mhz, 2 Core(s), 2 Logical Processor(s)

    Is there an Expert or Advanced mode that you can select? Text mode is also a good idea.

    Alternatively, you can give Fedora a shot, it is also pretty good with newer hardware. It also supports Advanced/Text modes during install.

    Which Graphics Card do you have? Have you tried text mode installation?

    Installers are not configuring your Graphics Card properly. Try Ubuntu Alternate Installation CD. It works well with almost all Graphics Card. Its easy to fix Graphics after successful installation.
