You have 'nomodeset' on in your kernel parameters. What happens if you remove that?
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.
So the problem is nomodeset, I think this bug can be closed as investigations are under bug 827911.
