Make sure to disconnect and remove every non-essential hardware item you have in/on the computer. I've found that this can often help during the setup stage.

Not even with the DVD reader as your primary boot drive?

I've done the opposite mistake a couple of times when installing XP; not taking the installation disk out of the reader before the rebooting.

Actually, with Windows 7, I could have swore that if it detects an installation, it won't boot from the DVD unless you press a key within the set amount of time (it'll say just that on the BIOS boot screen), so you can just walk away for a while until it's done installing.
