expanding windows files freezes/restarts on clean install

hi
im trying to fix friend's laptop (hp pavilion dv4) 4gb ram. installation always freezes at expanding windows files, it also happened during deleting hd partitions and while trying to format a newly setp up one. i tried removing ram, 1 at a time to see if this is ram issue but i am getting the same errors there. does this mean HD failed?

That sounds exactly like a hard drive failure.
