Can you tell us a bit more detail please?  When it boots first it asks
for language, then it gives the option of installing, checking the
image and so on.  On selecting Install it asks for language again,
then it asks for location.  Is that where it froze?   If so was it
showing the locations?  That seems a strange place for it to lock up.
