this may have nothing to do with what you wrote but I cannot stop
thinking about something similar happened to me many years ago.
Maybe what you describe as an installation halt may be the formatting
of the disk (even though you don't see disk activity). Have you tried
to leave the computer running for quite some time? I mean for an hour
or so.

Hope this helps,
