I got your problem. Sometimes even if it doesn't show any progress the process goes on internally. So just leave it as it is for half an hour or more and it should finish.

You can also look at following threads

HI Sheo Narayan,

I left the installation for more than 2 hours, i too though in the same way that the installation is going internally.
But it is still in the same condition, no change. so i rebooted the machine and i tried. the same story again.
i am checking for the solution in the links provided by you.

Thanks
Raju
