When the error occurs please hit cntl-alt-f4 and look for any 'read' or 'sense'
errors - I think your drive may be bad from the error message reported.
Thanks for your help. The drive was a new refurbished unit. Smart Start was
able to create a Compaq configuration partition, but other areas of the drive
were bad preventing the OS from successfully installing. I have since replaced
the drive and done a successful install.
