I don't have a lot of time to work on this but I ran the installer several times under different conditions and discovered what is causing the problem.
The graphics installer does not like one of my HDs. I have a 150GB and a 300GB HD in the system. It installs on the 150GB but not the 300 GB.
I was somewhat surprised because the text installer does not have a problem with the 300 GB HD. I had assumed the only difference between the 2 was the UI.
Below is the dump file the installer prompted me to save. It looks the the error output from a Python script.
Hope that helps.
