I am having a similar problem and have been told to type "text" at the boot
option prompt.  This uses a textual based install that is not reliant on your
graphics card type.  X windows can then be configured later.  I do not know if
this will help, but it is what I am about to try!!

Xconfigurator has been improved for the latest installer (available in beta) but
there will always be cards for which we do not have driver support yet, and
those cards will requite that users run the installer in text mode.
