Did you try turning of "APIC"?

If not, try passing the noapic argument to the kernel when you boot, whcih you can normallly do by either pressing "e" to edit the comamds that will be booted.

Or - Ubuntu Linux liveCDs provide a nice easy option to turn off APIC when booting

Which point does it freeze at?
