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
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=336281
with AMD Solo hardware, and
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=249174
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.
