Quite often when I encounter errors in copying files during setup it's caused by a defective RAM.
If you have several sticks of RAM try and pull some out leaving only one for setup.
Or better still run a MemTest86 test.
You could also run a diagnostic test on your HDD using MaxBlast if it's a Maxtor.
As for your files in the other partitions, it's time to have a backup plan since the HDD can quit working any instant and you risk to lose it all.
Put your CD-RW drive to good use and backup your files.
Failing all the above try and do the setup on a new HDD.
