Default Obsd won't install to acer laptop

After installing successfully to my desktop pc OpenBSD 4.9(i386) i tried to to do the same to my acer laptop.I used the same cd that i used for the desktop yet when i boot from the cd i get "Code dump" ,"Memory dump" and "Stack trace" and does not boot.

I also followed this instructions : http://www.openbsd.org/faq/faq14.html#flashmemLive

and when i boot from the usb i get the same error.
I have an acer aspire 5520,2GB Ram,amd athlon 64x2 dual core.

Any ideas or thoughts on what could be wrong?

edit: I also tried the "amd64" version and the same thing happens!The usb has 1gb capacity!
