I forgot to say that after the step 7, I saw a confirmation Windows,
and that I said "OK": the Exeption occured just after this click.

I repetaed the crash 3 times. I tried a 4th test without checking the
option Review (and modifiy if needed) the partitions created and I had
the same result.

I have a single HD of 10 GB. I think the existing Linux partition are
4 GB big. The screen after having choose Automatically partition show
the single selected drive:
hda 9586 MB HITACHI_DK23CA-10
To go around the bug, I choose a manual Druid partitiong, which show
/dev/hda2 as ext3 with 102 MB
/dev/hda3 as ext3 with 2832 MB
and an extended /dev/hda4 swap of 510 MB
I was enable to continue the installation process.
(I skipped the option to check the media in the very beginning of the
install process)
