I think it's a video issue, at the point is stops, it should enter graphics mode.


Try to use -x (safe boot), if it doesn't work I guess you will have to use other installation method which lets you remove the graphics kexts, such as USB http://Olarila.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=134

Try on another machine, if you manage to install, restore the DVD to a pen drive, install Chameleon to it and remove Intel HD kexts (AppleIntelHD* and AppleIntelSNB*) from /S/L/E.
