Floating point crash on Atom processor

Tried the OS on a small netbook, but it halted before the emulated screen was to be rendered.  After some tracing, I found the problem is when the system is scaling the screen.  Floating point numbers are needed for that code.  The halt was right at a floating point operation.  This was just a little Aspire One netbook, so I found it odd that it would stop right there.

If anyone has any ideas on why this might occur, please do let me know.
