Has this issue been resolved somehow ?
It seems I have exactly the same problem.
I have tried the procedure several times with the same effect ... or lack of desired effect ...
The only thing I have not tested yet is the number of green LED blinks (assuming they do occur).
To clarify what hardware I have :
3x SanDisk 32GB SD cards – 2 work fine (one with Raspbian image and one with BerryBoot) but 1 (with Raspbian via NOOBS) does not ... I would not blame the SD card as NOOBS boots up and sets up ext4 partitions as expected ... I think
RPi B – no issues found with booting with Raspbian image or with BerryBoot
Sufficient power supply – works fine
Basic keyboard and optical mouse – both work fine in other circumstances
Sony CRT TV connected via composite cable – again it displays NOOBS start-up menu once key 3 is pressed, NOOBS seems to append necessary lines to raspi_config to allow composite video output
With fresh image of NOOBS (ver 1_3, SHA1 verified) inserted into RPi, NOOBS boots up as expected.
Once Raspbian is selected to be installed, installation progresses as expected and finishes with the message that the installation was successful.
I click on OK and ... at this point Raspbian should boot.
I see no green LED activity, screen goes black, nothing happens at all.
Last time at this stage I waited for at least 10mins before powering down the RPi.
If I power cycle the RPi I can get into Recovery NOOBS screen (with Shift key) but it does not seem to be any exit from it.
I can edit start-up files but it does not seem to be an option to boot into installed OS (Raspbian shows on the list as an installed OS).
The only way to break that vicious cycle is to power down RPi.
I am lost but not disparate as I have other SD cards with Raspbian working from them.
I am only a bit shocked that something designed for newbies turns out not to be that easy to use as envisioned.
At least for me.
If the problem is known and the relevant solution exists then I would appreciate some feedback.
I start to think RPi hates me and my feelings towards it are becoming reciprocal.
It seems whatever more advanced feature I try it does not work as expected :

Ironically the basic Raspbian installation from a raw image download works for me best.
I can perform setup headlessly (as long as I know Pi's MAC to set up reserved IP on my router) without access to internet but with access to the network (so I can SSH to the RPi).
I also managed to install Raspbian via BerryBoot with VNC connection.
Tricky but not impossible.
And now ... NOOBS ... OS installer for ... noobies ... and it does not want to let Raspbian to boot ... hmmm ...
