This is x86_64 specific, and it does not happen on
every board, but it is not that specific like the subject
suggests.  This appears to be the same probles as
with AMD Solo hardware, and
which adds more board types to that fray (eMachines m6805, aka
Arima W720-K8, MSI MS-6741, Gigabyte GA-K8VT800M, ....).
Quite likely this list is longer.

It is possible to boot with agp=off and use 'Option "BusType" "PCI"'
in xorg.conf, if your video driver does support something like that,
and still get a decent video but with this issue on an
installation media many people may get a hard time.

On rawhide the problem surfaced only recently when a kernel
debugging was turned off and kernels from kernel-debug packages
still just boot.
