I must say (as I did in the above report too) I have not seen this 
problem here during atleast 20 installs, but I do have more powerful 
system I work on.

an easy way to see if its the kernel Hz that hits you, is:

at the initial splash screen (where it states "boot from harddisk, 
install mageia, ...) press esc and accept to go to text screen.

Then type: alt1 and press enter.

This will start the installer using the server kernel that has HZ_100.

(it will ask you about installation method, just select cdrom and it 
will continue)
