I was installing from a CD, so I went to the hardware details tab and
selected the CD ROM drive in boot options as the boot device. I know
this sounds stupid, but it worked then. However after your email I tried
to check whether it can still boot. (of course after changing the boot
device to something appropriate) But its stuck at "Booting from Hard Disk"
I will try again when I have some time this weekend. This might also be
a valid bug as I got this SElinux error every time I started a VM in
