Bug Description

After selecting my language and choosing "Install Ubuntu", i get the boot animation for about 2 minutes but there is no disk access. Then the animation disappears and i get a minimalistic terminal named "(initramfs)".
In Ubuntu Studio (9.04) i have the kernel crashing about half a second after booting.

Seems to be a kernel bug in the new 2.6.28.xx series.
System can't boot using included kernel, so i have to use the old 2.6.27 thing...
