I assume that what you are using is a restore disk. Restore disks are meant for thge computer it was shipped with. The reason being is that the disk has all of the chipset drivers for the board that is in the computer. Used with any other board and there could be problems.

A google search shows the framebuf error being mainly associated with video. What I also found was bios corruption and a bad floppy cable.

I would suggest setting the bios to default.
If you have video on the board, I would go with that first.
