Any suggestions as to what to try?

Well it seems I was able to fix the issue. Thought it was something rare applying to just my setup but thanks to the info here:


All I had to do was:

Boot Ubuntu 9.04 up. On the first screen, choose [English].
Then press [F4] and select [Safe Graphics].
Then press [F6], but do not select any option. Instead press [Escape] and it will allow you to change the command line. Remove the option "quiet splash --" and replace it with "vga=791 noreplace-paravirt" instead.
Press [Enter] to start the installation.

It did take a minute to boot but its working now. Now I will see if I can install it properly.

It looks like this fix will work with anyone having the same issues.
