    Sounds like maybe/most likely a bad stick of memory. Memory gets hit harder during an OS install than any other time and a BSOD can occur. Other things that can occur is the OS will report it can not find a file on the CD/DVD, or it will just lock the machine.

    I am not swearing by this at this point, but if it were XP I would say it would be a 95% possibility of bad RAM.

    What are your Computer specs and what media are you using for the install? If it is a home-burned download, it could be a corrupt copy. Otherwise try again but reformat with the
    installation dvd before your second effort. I personaly feel it is unlikely to be the ram. If you have your previous OS installed on the computer, try the installation again from the DVD, within that OS.
