Thanks for the reply. I am sorry for the lack of details. Here are some answers:

This is just booting from live DVD. No installation or upgrade yet. The system freezes at dm stage in the standard download but I get tty access. It also freezes with KDE spin live DVD while launching KDE (no dm here for some reason, probably due to enabled autologin) but this time no tty access.
I will retry with the standard version, although I actually need to see and install the KDE spin eventually, and post the error messages and the log file shortly.

FYI, I noticed the troubleshooting option while booting from Live DVD (KDE spin) and opted for the basic video there and was able to get a working Live OS with a low display resolution of course.
