Installation in a VM stuck at "Installing boot manager"


I’m installing OpenSuse x86_64 11.0 from DVD into a virtual machine ( using virtual manager and using kvm ) in a host running Fedora9, allocated the guest OS / machine with 512M and 1 virtual CPU and 8GB of disk space.

Tried twice, but the installation is always stuck at “Finishing Basic Installation / Install boot manager” … it’s been in that position for more than 1 hour and decided to kill / destroy the VM. The mouse works fine, even the mouse icon is animating, but it’s just stuck.

Any ideas ?
