Kernel Panic in install Kubuntu

After a month i'm having ubuntu in my Virtual Box from windows, i decided to install Kubuntu in a dual boot.
when the cd is loading i'm trying to install the cd but after i'm pressing "install kubuntu" or even "check cd for defects" i see a lot of program lines and in the last of them is written -
"kernel panic: ... attempting to kill init!" (or something like that)
and in that point the computer stuck, i cant do even ctrl-alt-del.
(i checked the cd in a new boot from my virtual box from windows and it worked fine, this problem is also in the alternative cd.
i have a intel 3 ghz and 1 gb ram)


(added a screen shot)

i saw similar threads about that problem but none of them was helpful to me, so i opened one myself.

check the kubuntu site for boot parameters such as noapm or noapic and such things, and try some of them.

ok. now we're getting somewhere.

after i added PCI=off (with noapic...) as parameters i see the Kubuntu logo for 5 seconds and then the i see again command lines:
"/bin/sh : can't access tty : job control turned off

and after this (initramfs) i can enter command (that i can see by typing "help".

anyone know how can i proceed from here??
