    For your guideline.

    Perform the FULL NTFS format to solve this most problems.

    When the setup hangs, with the dots still running, try to press ESC, ENTER or Space... probably having some hidden errors.

    If this is not working, you need to run the MemTest86 to vertify that your RAM is in good shape.
