    Freezing installation at "Scanning Partitions" step.. (Pic attached)

    hello..

    my pc E5500 2.8Ghz Processor, 4GB RAM, 2 Hard Disks (500GB and 80GB) ....

    I've installed Windows 8 on my 500GB hard disk, so i wanna install kali linux on my 80GB hard disk... i downloaded Kali Linux 32 bit os from Official Kali Linux Downloads page (Kali Linux 1.0.6 32 Bit ISO) and i made a bootable pen drive to install it (in win8) ... when am going to install it i got the same error.... so i though that something is wrong with 32bit version... then i downloaded the 64bit version from same place, the file name is "Kali Linux 1.0.6 64 Bit ISO" ... i made a bootable pen drive again.. but i got the same error... ... i got a screenshot

    have you partitioned the 80gb HDD?...Do it with gparted. Once done, make sure the HDD id (sda, sdb, etc) and when installing just tell which HDD you want to install onto.
