Executing the command it just hangs as well.

But I've solved the problem DISABLING the HIPERTHREAD FEATURE in the BIOS.

Intel says it's a program "incompatibility"... but interestingly
there's a patch
(http://developer.intel.com/design/motherbd/genbios.htm) for the BIOS
(and not the program :) to solve the problem... I'll do that later.

Thanks for the answers, and I hope it helps somebody else.
