The install stops making progress at 85% expanding files. I left it for 45 minutes and it still made no progress although it is clearly not frozen as it responds to cancel commands etc.

Tried formatting and making partitions again with no luck. Any suggestions would be appreciated!

It is a completely new clean machine with no other OS.

  • 1 Corsair XMS3 DDR3 1333MHz 6GB CL9 Kit w/3x 2GB XMS3 modules, CL9-9-9-24, for Core i7

7057 worked fine. Nevermind.
