Firstly, verify that USB is not a faulty one. If you have your Windows installation CD try installing using it. If you are unable to do so, then the USB is the faulty one.

If the installation operation goes well but is interrupted after a half way then either the HDD is a faulty one or the partitions are causing such issues on the system.

Make sure the label on your Hard disk drive is the appropriate one to install Windows OS. Or you can make use of Easeus Partition Master and change the partition label from Logic to Primary and try installing the OS again.

If you have a fair knowledge on hard ware then pull out you HDD and connect it to other computer and run memory test to diagnose the health and performance of the system HDD. If the HDD comes out clean then try the next step, if faulty then replace it.

If the USB is not detected try using the installation CD.
