I tried to install a custom installation profile on aegir today, the installation failed with this message:

Exception 'PDOException' with message 'SQLSTATE[42S02]: Base table or 
view not found: 1146 Table 'xxx.system' doesn't exist'

A local installation in a vagrant via drush worked without Problems.

The reason for this obscure error message was that I had defined a dependency in the installation profile, but the module was missing. After removing the not-existing module from the profile.info-file the installation went smooth.
