facing same problem, ( HP Compaq 6910p )
used ubuntu-12.04-desktop-amd64 to create startup disk of ubuntu-12.04.3-desktop-amd64
but no luck so far.

as mentioned, disabled boot from floppy (as there was no option to disable floppy controller)
but nothing happened

then i tried to enable SATA Native Mode in BIOS, reboot and wait for about five minutes,
it print error message
                          timeout: killing '/sbin/modprobe -bv pci:-------- ' [197]
repeatedly, then show ubuntu logo and booted fine.
