Make a troubleshoot

1.Burn another copy of your Windows.

2.Remove all but 2GB of RAM and try the install like that.PC RAM is extremely susceptible to stray, static electric charges generated by being physically handled; be sure to unplug/power-down the PC and bleed off any residual charge using the PC power button before you remove it.

3.In the PC BIOS make sure the "Storage Controller" is set to AHCI mode rather than IDE mode or if it's set to AHCI set it to PATA/IDE, try it both ways.

4.Perhaps install in IDE mode and enable AHCI mode after the install completes.

Try this 4 first.
