Could you try appending TERM=mach-color on the gnumach command line?
That'll enable the purely text installer.

It'd be good to check that gnu mach detects the 8GiB, and not something
else that would not be enough for loading the big gtk initrd.

Ideally you'd be able to catch the "AT386 boot: physical memory from
0x%x to 0x%x\n" message to know exactly how much it sees, and we'd be
able to try to reproduce the issue you have. It'd shown on the screen,
but also available in /var/log/syslog during the installer.
