I guess I am confused on how you have verified the CDs if the mediacheck hangs?

If you have USB legacy support enabled in your BIOS you might try turning it off.

The media was verified on another machine.

You were completely right - when I disabled legacy USB support, install
proceeded correctly.

thanks

This would appear to be a BIOS or kernel issue.
