Just one possibility. It might be the same problem, or it might not.
Start a bash shell. Unless your install is really badly damaged, this
should still work.
cd into /etc/postinstall.
Is there a file there called "d.sh"? If so, that's going to have been
causing setup to crash when it tries to handle it. Execute it directly
(enter "./d.sh"), then rename it with "mv d.sh d.sh.done".
After that setup should be able to complete.
In fact, if even your bash shell won't work, use a dos prompt to rename
it, then you can run it manually after your setup has completed by using ".
Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
