Installation won't start, shutting down after loading GUI!

System is my main PC, check sig for more.


It loads all kexts and stuff, shows the grey background, then the spinning wheel (harddrive activity/non responsive software/OS) comes, then black screen, where it says "Unloading kexts" and some other "Stops Autoloading kexts"


Then it shuts down. Not reboots, but shuts down.


I have the computer clocked down to stock 2.66


Might this be a problem with my CPU?


For the record, when I try Lion, I only get the SAM Multimedia Error, only on the empty NTFS disk 2s3, even when it is formatted to HFS+ in GParted.


Dunno what causes the first, but best would be to get rid of the latter so I could install Lion instead.


Might this be caused by my S-ATA burner/reader? I always used IDE on this setup before, and that, the CPU, and the hard drive is the only difference from last time I installed. Well, the GFX card is too, but that shouldn't matter in install as long as I get the GUI up at all.
