... just wondering: after downloading the ISO images, did you verify them
against the md5sums? If they checked out OK, and the burn was successful, 
did you check the *media* during install? As redundant as this step might
seem to you, it just might save you a lot of unnecessary aggravation.

IMVHO, if either the md5sums or the media check failed, you would be
wise to NOT try installing ... until *both* were successful.
