Was it live cd?
If you did it while running in os you might have damaged hdd.
I've done it before.

I think that installer is goofy. Might be you have to first create a few partitions and set to swap and ext filesystem and then try installer.

Most puppy installs use one of two ways to put puppy on the hard drive. One is almost a live cd to hd and the other is a more normal way. Which install did you choose?
