I am sure that there was no error message displayed and there was no
opportunity to do a disk partition.
Following this failed attempt, I did a net install - that was supremely
successful (how impressed was I? VERY!) and I am now reluctant to test the
process again using the complete DVD installation medium.
I could try to run through the process up to but stopping at the disk
repartition step if that helps (at medium priority level) if that helps.
Let me know,

At this point, something is no more correct. The next step should be
the hard disk partitioning step.
Are you sure you don't get any error screen at some point?
Could you retry the install at medium priority ?
