Try rdisk=x where x = the drive number (for whatever the drive you are booting from). If you're unsure of it, just test, starting from 0. Also, make sure the USB installer you create is for the laptop version, not the desktop version.

I also have a Alienware m14x and ran in to the same problem. It's really crazy but the only way that I could get around this was to install with a snow leopard DVD, from there i partitioned my hard drive 3 ways. One for windows, one for osx, and one for the installer. I then restored the Lion image to the installer partition, used rBoot to load it up and installed like that.

Hope this helps.
