Here is a couple of things to try

Did you check the md5sum of the disk?
Are you using a standard US Keybaord?
If not, maybe some character in your password or username is raising the exception.

If you install using the GUI installer, can you open a terminal a snap a copy of the installation logs in your /root folder and post them somewhere please?  Look for files named "installation.log", "installer.log" and "subprocess.log" ..  This may help with collecting logs

If user/password setup is the only thing that fails, you should be able to finish up the installation by logging in as root, blank password (just press Enter when it asks for password). Once logged in, create a user and set passwords.

As an alternative to Slackware which was constantly giving me kernel panic, I downloaded this distro in its standard variant. The installation goes according to plan except when the progress shows 100% and I have a display of setting passwords. The installation hangs at this point and goes no further. I do a reset to get to the login screen, but since no users or root password have been added I can't proceed any further. I have tried it multiple times but every time the same result. Any suggestions

My Specs

Pentium D 925 processor
Gigabyte G41 MotherBoard
Corsair Value Select DDR3 RAM 4GB
Seagate 250GB HDD for Linux
Seagate 500GB HDD for Windows

Testing kernel 4.4.11 on my laptop, looks good. Wifi works with BCM4321, nvidia 340.96 built without any issues and runs well.

Multiple distros on a drive is quite common when you are testing/playing with several releases. My single core laptop without hardware virtualization would choke on a virtual machine, but it has been a valuable tool for testing alphas and betas while still being usable for work.

Probably time to wipe out Win2K though.  ;D

im probably going to hate myself for asking this but why 7 distros?
why not install 1 distro and play with other distros in a VM such as virtualbox?

Re: 1st pc, no GUI install, x & wifi problems (I named this one 'play2')
ISO passes md5sum check.  Don't use a separate home partition.  All personal files are kept in a separate data partition mounted as /common, with symbolic links from login directory to directories on /common.  Don't think /common was mounted during install, added to fstab 2 days later.

I currently have 7 distros installed on play2.  Good news is that after SEVERAL DAYS of playing with it (TUI boot, root login, start xfce4, start wifi, then logout, relogin as me and start xfce4 and wifi) installation seems
to be normal.  Today, booting GUI, login as me, wifi autostarts, menus work, etc.  Have done more desktop configuration, installed thunderbird, gnucash, libreoffice, did some browsing.  Only change was insuring that xfce4 was preselected session before logging in.  Did this several days ago, didn't seem to make any difference then.  Today it's GREAT and FAST :).  System seems to have healed itself.  X can still die on login but works OK if I try again.
