When you install try setting noapic and/or nolapic as kernel 
parameters.  I've seen it before where that resolves the slowness

And HP will only talk to you if you have it on the system! They're crazy people - it could be hardware thats the problem but they will insist Windows will fix it with their "magic" software... (you'll have to excuse my ranting but this is really a sore point!)) and the process is really slow to even get to the install - first it stops at running /sbin/loader, then it stops again before anaconda installer.
