Fixed in git and we'll include this fix in the updates.img that we're intending
to put up this week.  Thanks for the report!

I would add another fix - reduce the memory in your system at install time.  I 
have a 6Gb dual Xeon system and scratched my head on this for the last 2 
weeks.  Finally saw the PAE kernel had been installed, so tried to install with 
2Gb RAM.  That worked a dream.

On first boot I installed the PAE kernel and made it default.  On first reboot 
after that I re-installed RAM.

Bit of a pain, but got there in the end.
