It looks like the local mirror used is having problems (or has a download limit
or something). You should pick another mirror from the list at


for example http://ctan.larsko.net/ (located in Germany) and try again using
this mirror. After unzipping install-tl.zip, open a command line (win-R cmd) and
cd to the directory where the files are unzipped. Then type:

install-tl.bat -repository http://ctan.larsko.net/systems/texlive/tlnet/

(if you chose another mirror, just append systems/texlive/tlnet to the URL found
in CTAN.sites).

If you get the same error, please try one or two other mirrors.

Hope it works that way,
