<edit> I read the question too fast I thought it was happenning after the first reboot once it was installed, so my suggestion can't work... but still if you can give "special parameter" to the kernel of the install cd, it should work.

This is probably an IRQ problem that hang the SATA driver.
Try to add one of the following option to your boot loader :

I don't know which one will work for you, so you will have to take a guess.
