    After the first stage of the install (the blue-screen part), you should boot off of the Windows partition, not the install CD.

    Er? I don't follow.

    After the first stage, the installer reboots. You can either let it reboot and do nothing when you get the 'Press any key to boot from CD...' prompt (so it'll boot from the hard drive), or you can hold down Option at the grey screen to get to the Boot Camp menu and select the Windows partition.

    At this point, you should get the second stage of the installation, where you get the Windows 3.11-esque GUI and it asks you questions about the date/time, your Windows key, etc.
