After numerous installs it appears that it is a networking issue.
The post install configuration freezes for 5 minutes where the stopwatch cursor
can not be moved and appears to have locked up, however it eventually continues.
The problem only occurs when configuring fixed IP networking. If I select DHCP
networking there is only a few seconds freeze before it continues.
It is better not to freeze the cursor at all.

Do you have a correct nameserver specified with your static config?
