B&W G3 Installed Kernel Hangs after loading ohci_hid

I've tried downloading a fresh kernel after booting the installer and chrooting into the install. I tried the appending nousb option, but the kernel came up in recovery mode on account of having to reset it after the crash, and without the usb modules the keyboard didn't work. I couldn't do anything to the machine so I just hard reset it again. So how can the installer

Kernel work so well and the same kernel installed on a hard drive work so badly? I've searched around the internet and I haven't seen anyone with the same problem. I've got
