    Are you trying to upgrade or do a clean install - it may be necessary a total clean install.

    Are you booting from your install media or running setup.exe from Windows? Where did you get your ISO and how old is it? I would download a new one to rule out the one you have no being corrupted.

    Are you booting from the install media or doing the upgrade from Windows?

    Yes, but are you booting from the thumb drive? There are two ways to do it. You can run setup.exe from your currently installed and running Windows. Or you can change the BIOS boot order so your PC boots from the thumb drive instead of your hard drive. The second option may work when the first one doesn't. Just pay close attention to the menus so you don't lose any personal files etc.

    And back up all of your data before you attempt this at home.

    Heck, you might as well back up all of your data before you try anything.
