You have 'nomodeset' on in your kernel parameters.  What happens if you remove that?
Comment 5 biodark 2012-06-04 17:50:52 EDT
This is out of the box instillation, I didn't change anything, if I remove nomodeset I can see the text during boot but it never boots successfully to the desktop.
Comment 6 biodark 2012-06-04 19:28:16 EDT
So the problem is nomodeset, I think this bug can be closed as investigations are under bug 827911.
