Ah, sorry. My fault. I obviously read "able" instead of "unable"...

So does the 8254 error actually prevent booting? If not, I wouldn't worry.

I wouldn't blame ATI for this - it sometimes happens to me with Intel 915
You might try any of the other terminals first. I find that when that
happens, it only happens to the first terminal I try. So try
<ctrl-alt-f1>, if you get the vertical lines, try the next one. When you
see a good terminal, then try <ctrl-alt-f8>. I just know that the log
messages must be available somewhere, but I can't find them either...
