Why not stack the deck this time?  After choosing language, why not hit 
the < key until you get onto the main menu and select save log files and 
save them to a mounted file system installer will offer /mnt on the hard 
drive.  Then change the debconf priority to low and once that's been 
done go back to installing with the next default step on the main menu. 
This way, the log file will have lots more information in it as to what 
failed and why.
