Fedora 13 Installation Problems HP DL165

I've been fighting trying to get Fedora 13 to install on a HP ProLiant DL165 G6 for the better part of a week. The server is using a P212 SAS RAID card, and I've finally gotten the x86_64 install DVD to recognize the array (it wouldn't see it unless it was in Slot 2, unlike Fedora 12 which didn't care what slot it was in). I can progress in the install process up to the point where it is setting up the partitions, at which point it freezes when creating the ext4 file system on '/dev/mapper/vg_*-lv_home'. I've left the machine for up to four hours at this point, so I know it's frozen, and not just really slow (besides, the Fedora 12 installer would only spend ~3 minutes at this point).

I've tried using the release x86_64 DVD and the beta x86_64 DVD; the Live CD won't see the RAID array. I've also tried installing Fedora 12 (which works fine) and then upgrading via yum, but this causes problems abound.

Any suggestions (other than using Fedora 12)?
