crunchbang on asus eee won't install to ssd hard drive

basically, when i select the 'install' option from the boot up menu, it goes thru the white bar moving around and loading and then after that goes to just a black screen with just a cursor. I have tried leaving it sitting around for several minutes and it just stays at that black screen. Ctrl alt delete or ctrl alt backspace do nothing as well, I pretty much have to shut off power. I used unetbootin on windows several weeks ago so whatever the most recent versions of both were two months ago. Has anyone else had this problem? I use a 900a btw. Also note that using the live option works fine. Is there a script i can run from command line within live?

Is it a problem with the disk itself?

Just a random guess, but it doesn't look like anyone else is going to help you
