Bug#396469: Installation report: failed install on Toshiba Satellite

I just typed the first and last few numbers of thd Stack and Call Trace. There are more hex numbers where the ellipses are.
I'm not set up to boot over a null modem. Is there any way I can do an interactive boot and step through each piece as it's loading?

Please give us any information that you _can_ see on the screen. I know
that copying that manually is a pain, but without the info we cannot
Another option, if the laptop has a serial port, you have another box to
connect it to and a null-modem cable, is to boot over serial console.
That should give you the full log of boot messages.
