Are you trying to install on a 512 Mbyte RPi? As others have mentioned this installer is rather old. Its firmware probably does not support the larger RAM chip that is on the 512 RPis.

Suggest you try the conventional method of writing a complete image to the SD card. Start with the latest Raspian wheezy on the 'Download' page.
