installation stops at running\sbin\loader


I have a Compaq Presario 5834, with Windows XP installed.I want to keep WXP. WXP automatically did a partition in my disk and I am trying to use it. I decided to erase everything in that partition (D:\) and I formatted it. Then I booted the computer from the DVD driver, and this seems to work because the installation procces beggins, but it stops at:

running install

Can somebody tell me what is the problem?

It's probably a DMA issue:
