A couple of recommendations:

1.  Try adding 'noapic acpi=off' to the boot line when you boot from
the disc.

2.  Read through http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Anaconda/BugReporting
and then file a bug about your particular problem.  If you can give
detailed information about the hardware -- and it sounds from the
above like you're well informed already! -- that will help a lot.

3.  You might want to check in on the anaconda developers' list to see
if they have any other tips.
