Installin 14.0 or 14 rc4 system locks during package installation


I'm not sure what is going on, this machine was running rc4 just fine. I formatted everything, setup up mdadm using raid 0 and I just can't get the packages installed. I know the usb stick is good because i just used it to install rc4. I have no reason to believe that the dvd with 14.0 is bad because both installers fail in the same place although the exact package can vary a little bit, but it's generally during the KDE series. I've tried with xfs and btrfs. The machine just freezes, not even blinking keyboard lights. It just stops. A few times I've gotten an error at the time of freeze that says something like killed XXXX blah blah read series. mdadm is the only new twist on this install, but I'm not sure why it would fail in the same place each time?

Help is always appreciated.

Seems to be failing hardware. All the I/O and unpacking of files just seems to push it too far.
