Let me chip in here with a (probably useless) suggestion...

Please don't hit me if it becomes blatantly obvious that I've not got a clue
about what I (or anyone else) is talking about :).

A while back I had a similar problem to you when trying to install Red Hat
7.1 on my better half's PC... it would show LIL and freeze.

Eventually I changed a setting in the BIOS which said something like "OS" or
"Boot OS" or something to that effect to "DOS" (I had set it to "other").
Voila... it worked.

No idea why.
