You're probably using either some commercial theme that is not correctly installed or try to create new installation using existing codebase.

The problem you're having is that the theme REQUIRES you to have an attribute "Featured" and is unable to find it. Fatal error: Call to a member function getBackend() on a non-object is the dead ringer of such issue.

If you use third party theme, please see what attributes must be generated. If you're using existing theme, check original installation attribute list for the attribute. If both of the options are off the table, just check what the theme wants to do with the "Feature" attribute. Or you could just try empirical approach and generate an attribute "feature".

PS. It's good practice to create installation script that automatically generates all required attributes.
