    I have had similar problems in the past. Are you using an IDE hard drive? If so, then make sure you are using the correct cable and plugged in firmly. There is a 40way, and an 80 way cable. The 80 way has more wires inside which is very noticeable when you take a look at them side by side. This is most likely the culprit. The 80 way provides better shielding from interference with additional ground wires, as far as I can remember.


    A) Remove all disk partitions to start with.
    B) If you are saying it booted successfully into the installer and then
    hung, it could be two things that immediately come to mind: Hard drive is flaky (check with manufacturer's utility)
    or Restart the install, and when it says "Press F6 to load third party drivers etc...", press F7. This will let you tell Windows that you are not an
    ACPI Uniprocessor machine, but a "Standard PC". I had a WindowsXP install that did the same thing that ended up with me wasting two
    days of my time swapping RAM, hard drives, NICs, motherboards, CPUs, everything, until I finally changed it to Standard PC which fixed the

    Let me know how this goes. It should be a relatively simple fix.
    hope this helps you out.
