It is really weird that you don't get logs from those runs...
And the RadeonHD driver seems pretty convinced that there are
no displays attached.

I still didn't get an Xorg.conf from you, it might show something.

My only thought right nowis to try specifying some monitor info, like
VertRefresh and HorizSync, and maybe use:
Option "ModeValidation" "NoEdidModes"
Option   "UseEdid" "false"

or some such.
