Hello and welcome to the forum.
Try removing all but a single stick (module) of memory make sure it is in the proper slot according to your motherboard manual.
And or try another / different DVD drive if yours is an older model in the old box then it might be having laser issues.
Keep us posted.

Thanks for the reply. I wondered about the older dvd drive. I will replace that first and give it a shot...

Thanks Trouble,
Replaced older IDE dvd read/writer with new ($42) SATA dvd read/writer. Not only worked like a charm, but ran through setup about 8 times faster.
