To fix this you need to change where X:\adobeTemp is being placed.

HI, 
I have apparently resolved the issue. 

Solution:
So what i did was, I deleted the ADOBE folder from Program Files in C first.  Then I installed Adobe Acrobat Reader (It could be any ADOBE Software, like Illustrator or anything). Once i did that, I tried reinstalling Illustrator and this time it didn't stop at 5%. It just worked easy peasy. 

My Problem:

I was running out of space in C so i CTRL+X ed ADOBE folder form Program files to D. But later created a new partition F and moved the folder there. And for some reason it kept on crashing afterwards. I tried reintsalling Illustrator but It gave me the error 176.
