(Yea it's slow.) On another forum, someone with the same m/b as I have, couldn't boot in UEFI mode until he connected his cdrom to the primary SATA ports. Kubuntu worked for me on a Sabertooth 990FX board. I did try other distro's but that was probably the first one I thought of booting off a CD and since it worked...

In RedHat/CentOS it's ctrl+alt+F1 through F9 or however.. it depends on if it's the install or actually running. For a RH install I believe F1 & F2 are shells whereas F3 and/or F4 are log & error outputs.
While installing try to switch through the alt consoles and see if there are any logs telling you what it is hung up on.
