I didn't have the problems you face above, but I've seen the strange
characters in console you mentioned. Here is a picture I took of the

I am not 100% sure about it, but the strange characters seem to appear
after some kernel modules are loaded (I could see raid stuff in the
second console, although I don't have raid).

The big blue area in the middle of the screenshot is due to the media
check dialog (which I ran, and was ok). I can't remember if the
characters in the media check dialog where also strange or not. I think

As it can be seen at the bottom, before starting the graphical installer
the characters appear normally. The rest seemed to work fine (I didn't
do the whole install).
I tested the installed on another computer, with very different
hardware, and I didn't have those issues.
