Installer halts after copying only a few files

When trying to install Haiku to the hard disk from the Haiku Installer CD it appears to start correctly but after copying only a few files (this varies from 4 to ~140, never more than that) it halts and the hard drive light stays lit until a restart. The system becomes unresponsive also; sometimes it responds to the 'Stop' button and show the Shutdown dialog, other times it doesn't.
When a 2nd Hard drive was installed in the PC it halted but also the debugger command line would appear at the top of the screen and the system would be completely unresponsive.
Similar system unresponsiveness and the lit hard drive light were seen when the system was booted from the CD and then the hard drive partition was mounted.
Have also tried to boot with DMA disabled and with many of the other options disabled, such as ACPI and disallow BIOS calls, but these didn't affect anything.
