I reset the bios and tried again - to no avail. Also tried safe mode in which case the installation actually finished, however the installation seemed to be corrupt as the os froze after login. Specs:

- nforce 650i
- xfx nvidia 8800 gts 640
- intel quad q6600
- corsair 1gb x2
- two WD hdds

Additional information: the installation seems to run very slowly until the actual installation starts, in which case the Copying Windows files takes less than 3 seconds to finish and then hangs after the next process has started. Any ideas?
Having any USB devices plugged will cause these types of problems when installing Win7.
