EDIT: Just seen this thread: [url][/url] have you tried that?

Hi Donkeli

I had this same problem, I still don't know why but SS just wont accept that modrewrite is working.

Anyway to get around it just up your max_execution_time to 200 and memory_limit to 512 in your php.ini

Your install should then have enough time to get to the mod_rewrite test page on install which will fail and ask if you want to continue anyway, and will then forward you to your newly installed site which should be working just fine :)
