You should check basic .config things such as the CPU type.

Also ensure that you have `earlyprintk=vga' on the kernel boot command line.

The only thing I can think of which would cause such an early failure is
the kexec changes. Does 2.6.13-rc1 work OK? It had kexec.

If 2.6.13-rc1 fails then please try these patches, against 2.6.12:

If 2.6.12-git7 works and 2.6.12-git8 fails then we'll know where to start
looking, thanks.
