No idea what the problem is, but I also can't boot 12.1 on one
computer. I have to leave the DVD in the drive and boot it first then
it continues on to booting from the hard drive, which then works.

IME this problem has been with the MBR. I have solved it in the past by
putting the DOS code in the MBR and using the primary PBR sector instead.

This is a two parts issue. We should isolate one from another for a good
understanding of these issues.
1) Reboot problem: it hangs post copy files for installation (first reboot).
So I would say is boot path related problem as grub1, sysVinit and systemd
still coexists. And there is something conflicting each other. I will agree it
is a bug not able to select the path for booting correctly. Not sure where
exactly. happens It only seems present in kernel 3.1.0 and successors. It's
not present in kernel 3.2.
2) Video Adapter Card problem: most Nvidia cards are able to work with free-
open source drivers like Nouveau-Mesa3D experimental drivers (automatically
installed when Nvidia Cards are identified). Despite it is able to work in
most Nvidia Video Cards ocassionally could show some glitchy on edges.
