Autodesk Revit is freezing during installation

I have just updated my macintosh hard drive and am restoring Revit on the Windows BootCamp. I am re downloading the installation files from autodesk student website since the program has not expired yet. I have been trying to install revit all day/night but when there are "2 of 5 remaining" the installation freezes when the window that says "preparing revit content" comes up. I am in the middle of my last semester of college and am in desperate need to have this program on my computer. Can someone help quick?!?! Fire walls are off. I have tried switching to a different network. Nothing seems to be working. I cant uninstall the parts of revit that has been downloaded because it never gets fully installed, which means it is leaving pieces of the installation on my computer each time i try to install it and it fails. Are there certain files that I need to delete on my computer before trying to installing again? If so, where are they located? Help! Thanks.

Darren is exactly right.  Run the installer.  Let it run overnight.  In the morning you will have Revit.
