You can switch with
CTRL + ALT + F2 (or F1 or ...)
to a terminal during installation.
The GUI install is still on
CTRL + ALT + F7
and you can swith between them.
you can find the relevant logs in
(by default the promt points to /home/ubuntu/
so you have to switch)
to examin them manually you can use if you are in var/log/
(exit nano with CTRL + ^ + X )
So far I have tested.
May be that works also when the install procedure is already hanging.
What I have not tested is to get out the logs to a usb stick or

Ubuntu 12.10 beta 1 amd64 installer hanging during boot.
Status in “ubiquity” package in Ubuntu:
About 10-20 seconds after the ubuntu logo show up, the installer simply hangs and nothing happens.
I edited the syslinux/txt.cfg file to enable console output and I found out that the install hangs at this line :
"Stopping save kernel messages"
Is there any way to boot normally now.
