That happened to me the first time, but worked the second time and I
knew the second install was different than the first install for I
was all of a sudden presented with single gui "install-questions"
regarding users, and stuff like that.  Not what I did different the
second time other than resize the partitions by a slight amount to
ensure that nothing from the previous install was used, even a
previously formatted partition.

It installed the second try.
