I have got the same problem but on an Asus M2N4 SLI with dual Nvidia 7300 GT and 200 Gb Sata disk...
I have tried both mininal and complete desktop installation.

Googling a bit, I have seen some possible solutions...
1) use LVM and automatic partitioning (I have done manually using one ext4 and swap)
2) unplug one of the two Nvidia cards
3) pray...
