Sorry an error in my above post. The two messages that flash on screen between the all-purple screen and the Ubuntu splash screen are:

MP-BIOS bug: 8254 timer not connected to IO-APIC
ata3: softreset failed (device not ready)

The all-purple screen lasts for about 20 seconds. The two messages above last for about 3-5 seconds.

Still seems to boot fine ie without the stripey / herringbone effect.
