Are there any messages displayed on the screen when the installer crashes? After the crash, can you switch to a console (Ctrl-Alt-F2) and access any of the log files in /tmp? If so, can you save those files somewhere and attach them to this bug? What are you setting the hostname to? Can you connect to the wifi network if you do not change the hostname?
