Default repair install freezes at product key

Four times already it has done this. The cursor blinks but the mouse and keyboard are not responding. Bad RAM maybe?

Edit: it doesn't hang until I hit a key on the keyboard. The mouse cursor will move until I hit a key, then it locks up. The keyboard worked fine in the bios and running from the repair console.

Update: Ran Memtest for several passes with no errors.

If your equation requires either a complex combination of variables to get the desired result OR you can't seem to get the result regardless of the variables....it ain't your variables, it's your constant.

Went ahead and formatted/reinstalled. Seems to be working now. Weird.
