Nah, it happened to me on my lowly 7200 as well.  The question is,
during this install did you attempt to change the partition
information on the disk that you booted from?  This shouldn't be a
problem, but that was the circumstance under which it happened to
me, so I just assumed that it was related.  Was no big deal, except
that afterwards I couldn't boot from that disk and the install
wasn't finished.  Doh!
