I take it this is firstboot where you are having the problem. The 
installer seemed to work fine regarding the installer. I did not make it 
through the upgrade process to try firstboot.
I did notice an error in one of the logs regarding the i910 kernel 
module and a DRM error.

I am uncertain if the i910 module should be used for the 865G video. I 
assume that when the numbers go up, the card is a later addition. The 
i810 kernel module being used is what I thought was supposed to be used.
