I cannot get the new 11.2 to install on my machine. THe moment i hit enter at the boot prompt to begin installation, the scree just goes black and unresponsive - caps & scroll lock lights on the keyboard light up and remain lit. no disk activity whatsoever. I tried installing various resolutions, in text mode none gets past the black screen.

Acer aspire AM1100
Athlon XP 3600+ (64x2)
8GB ram

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
edit: Note - 11.1 never had this problem. Also it is not the same post install ATI driver issue from other threads. This hang up happens immediately after the boot prompt so I cannot even install 11.2
