It's an ati related issue j think... the same here both with 3.4a and 3.4e and an ati 9700pro...
It's related to ati driver, so you can fix booting with radeon driver instead.
J myself did:
sudo nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf

Look for driver=fglrx and substitute with driver=radeon

save and exit

type "gdm" and login

This worked for me both in live dvd and in installed system.

Looks like something funny is going on with hald - the daemon for Hardware Abstraction Layer. Try running hald from the command line to see the output.

I doubt this has anything to do with your video card.
