Did you install it via CD (ie boot from CD) on the first box or did you use a bootdisk?

Try burning another copy of the ISO (hopefully you have it still) and try again? Sometimes little quirks like this happen with computers.

Also, try the original CD in your first machine and see if it boots up into the Slack install
