describe too much time:- a few second, a few minutes, 15mins, 30 mins, more?
the installation does sit at 0% for a while but it gets there eventually.

Are you trying to reinstall windows to an damaged disk? That's not going to work. Restart the installation, but goto the command prompt and run a checkdisk first.

"Expanding Windows files" is completely dependent on your HDD/SSD. It's possible that your drive is very slow, dead (or dying), or in the wrong mode. Try switching to AHCI mode if it isn't in it, and if it is, then switch it to IDE mode.
