I've only done the installation by booting from the ISO, but it
*sounds* like it may be a bad configuration parameter, possibly the
entry that identifies the target partition.

It's the end of the day and I'm brain-dead, but the ASCII file with
the configuration options...check the partition entries, uncomment the
last line and re-apply them.  I bet that will do the trick.
