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.

Regarding to

https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DebuggingUbiquity

you can find the relevant logs in

var/log/...

(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/

nano syslog

(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
something.

But I can give a document here that might be helfull:

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Mount/USB

especially:

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Mount/USB#Manually_Mounting

Hope that helps on a Sunday.

Title:
  Ubuntu 12.10 beta 1 amd64 installer hanging during boot.

Status in “ubiquity” package in Ubuntu:
  New

Bug description:
  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.
