The postactions are mostly for menu shortcuts and file associations,
but there are also font-related scripts for dvipdfmx and xetex.

So your texlive should be mostly functional as-is.

If you want to investigate: run install-tl-advanced.bat from the
command-line with an option -v which makes installation more
verbose. The installer probably won't get around to writing a log
file, so you will have to make do with what shows up in the command
prompt window. But you can copy-and-paste from there.  At least, you
should get to see exactly where the installer gets stuck.
