Is it stuck, or just thinking?

    I'm install WinVista (Business), and the progress is at "Expanding Files."  It has been on 13% for quite some time now.  Is it stuck and needing of a swift kick to the reboot button, or just thinking about it?

    This is the same machine as before (when I tried RC1 or something).  It did crash with an issue about the memory manager and again with a complaint about ntfs (STOP 0x00000024).  I created fresh partitions and kicked the fan speed up, because last time, it was overheating.

    Are you upgrading a previous copy? I remember that one of the stages took hours (like 5) to do with an upgrade with RC2, so it could be that.

    Fresh install, since the previous OSes were completely hosed somehow.

    I'm kicking it.  I guess it is hosed.

    The hardware itself must be crapped out.  I'm still getting STOP errors.  The installer for Vista reports that a drive is going bad... maybe that is causing issues.
