yes, I too get the same thing happening.
also, when I did the installer, it hung at the "this computer will reboot" screen. it counted down and then stopped..
The system is:
P4 2.53 GHz
1 GB Ram
80 GB WD HD
I found a solution to my situation, maybe it will help you if you're still stuck as well.
On the installer, choose custom install, uncheck the maxusss patch for sse3 (because I had a P4 and it says not to install it), then when booting up, I went into safe mode ( -x ) haven't tried full mode yet, and everything was cool, except my sound card wasn't found.
But I had it join my 2003 domain, and logged in with a user account on that, and my network drive was mapped and everything .
