It was whatever BIOS was available in summer of 2010...how do I check which BIOS I have...I can't get the boot screen to freeze long enough to read the version

If you have any other hard drives connected (internal and/or external), disconnect them and restart installation.

OK, finally got it to install. Needed to delete the partitions that were on the drive and then add NEW partittions, then no problem....unbelievable how simple the solution was. Painful too given I was convinced the Install disk was faulty and went and bought another copy for $175....oh well, live and learn....next phase, install video and other required drivers and then on to Protools installation. Watch this space

003R plugged-into Firewire port before or after Drivers / ProTools software install?
