I'm having the same problem but with Windows 7 pro 64 bit. Have you solved your problem?
I'm thinking it's a BIOS issue because I have been able to install iATKOS v7 fine, although ive since deleted it (I tried Win7 RC, an older version of Ubuntu, and XP, ALL of them froze before the installer launched).
But, at the same time, I don't see how that could be the issue at all. I really don't know what to do!
