Upgrade Caused Downgrade


I've just experienced one of the most unnerving situations. I've a custom built machine that was running the following:
      ECS GeForce 6100SM-M mother board
      AMD 64 X2 5600+
      4GB RAM DDR2 800
      nVidia GT7300 PCIE 256MB video card
      2 - SATA Hard drives; 1 - 320 GB WD and 1 - 500GB Seagate
      550 watt Antec power supply
      Fedora 9 x86_64 with all of the latest patches

For Xmas I upgraded the machine to:
      Gigabyte MA790X-DS4 mother board
      AMD Phenom Quad core 9550
      8GB RAM DDR2 800
      Retained the video card from above
      2 - SATA Hard drives; 1 - 500 GB Seagate and 1 - 1TB Seagate
      850 watt Antec power supply

I attempted to install, from the same DVD used above, Fedora 9 x86_64 with 4 failures at just about the same place while installing packages. I used my i386 Fedora 9 DVD and all went well during the install so attempted to do a upgrade to x86_64 without luck. I did a test using my Fedora 8 x86_64 DVD and it installed perfectly. I then attempted to do a upgrade to Fedora 9 without any luck (it appeared to fail at about the same place). I then downloaded and burned another copy of the Fedora 9 x86_64 DVD, checked it and attempted to do another install and one again it failed at about the same place.

What could possibly be happening? I since reinstall Fedora 8, but that has reached it's E-O-L. Should I just attempt to go to Fedora 10 x86_64?

Any help or advice would be great!
