    I'm trying t install RC2 onto a 24.4gig partition on my Master drive (100gig total) and everytime I try to install, it hangs when it gets to "Installing Updates". It just sits there forever, I let it sit for 2.5 hours and no change. I'm trying to dual boot. My computer specs are as follows:



    Windows XP SP2

    3072megs of DDR RAM

    ATI Radeon X1900 512meg video card running 2 19" LCD monitors

    3 drives:

    100gig WD Master drive-160gig WD SATA secondary drive-160 Seagate Externa

    ASUS A8N-SLI Delux mobo

    Athlon 64 X2 4800+ CPU



    Any ideas?

    I noticve that you have 3gb of ram.



    Maybe try dropping it down to 1 or 2 gb or ram and see if it behaves.



    I can't think of anything else. You config looks pretty standard otherwise.

    Are you checking the box which allows it to check for install updates and thats why its crashing? Is your internet hooked up? When does it do the installing updates thing during the install?

    Well, I've tied it both ways, telling it to check for updates and telling it not to check updates. Either way it sticks on "Installing Updates" during the install.
