OK, so it sounds like most of the machine is working, just something in the  installer is broke - so the quesiton is what,
could you try and get more of the logs onto this bug report.

Could you try and attach:
   * The full output of dmesg
   * Any other logs from /var/log that look interesting, there might be a specific installer.log and that would be good.

  Precise alternate (and therefore LTSP) install fails

Status in “debian-installer” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  On socket 775 and 1155 motherboards, Precise i386 intermittently fails
  to install from alternate CD.

  Machine is not locked up, but merely stalled and some information is
  available by pressing Ctrl Alt F4.

  Gigabyte G31-M, and Foxconn, both 775 motherboards, install stops
  after inputting hostname. Ctrl Alt F4 information shows no errors. The
  last things to be on the screen are several successes with these at
  the end:

  DEBUG: Writing DHCP stanza for eth0
  DEBUG: Success!

  (Bug report rewritten after further testing with Precise final and
  Quantal Daily 12/8/12)
