You'd probably been asked about timezones at that point but for the crash.

The bit of magic which runs the further install steps apparently managed
to delete itself but didn't yet copy the new inittab (/etc/inittab.real)
over /etc/inittab. So on the next boot, inittab still references the magic
script (that got deleted on the first failed boot). Try to replace inittab
by inittab.real from the installer ramdisk (just mount filesystem to
/target and use the shell to copy things around).
File a bug against boot-floppies please. I'm just guessing here, someone
from the boot-floppies team might have another explanation.
