I had a similar problem related to low memory, but in my case the
installation hung at ./native-install, and then at the same place
as you on reboot. I used a virtual machine and could just up
the memory from 256M to 512M, which worked fine a couple of weeks
ago. If you have less then 512M RAM check out the instructions
on how to activate swap manually before ./native-install at
Otherwise, I have no clue, but you can clear the password manually by
editing /etc/shadow, just clear the second field of the root account.
(man 5 shadow, for more info)
