Hey, if it helps at all my system did the same thing, almost gave up. But about five minutes after that message first appeared it continued installing. Actually installed on two systems - the other one only had that message displayed for about one minute.

You probably have 2 issues that I also had.

First, the please wait message is programmed in the wrong place, or the M$ routine has put it in the wrong place. Couple that with the fact that you can barely hear new hard drives running, and you won't know the program is actually working. One glance at your HD light will tell you to wait a few.

2nd, the NVIDIA drivers have DX issues with can easily be resolved by turning off a feature which is mentioned in another thread here. Cant remember off hand.

Tabris, you probably had an older version of the installer on your machine. So, you have to wait while it updates your system. It hasn't hung - you just have to be patient.

Since you have a geForce card, read the FAQ.
