Ok.  Windows 8 finally installed.  Here is what I had to do:

 

1) Remove wireless USB device and remove all related software. Of course, this required connecting the box to the internet via a wired connection rather than wireless.

 

2) Stripped out all cards (video, audio, etc) in the computer.  The only thing left in the box was the CD-ROM drive, the hard drive, and the motherboard.

 

3) Selected the install option to keep "Nothing".

 

After doing all of the above the installation completed.

 

Once Windows 8 was running and updated via Windows Update I went back and tried to install the wireless USB device and its drivers.  Windows 8 promptly crashed with an "unexpected IRLC ..." message (whatever that meant).  After removing the wireless USB device and its software Windows 8 ran properly.  Right now I do not have a wireless device or card that seems to work with Windows 8 so I'm still using what amounts to a wired connection for internet access.

 

Hope this helps.
