help with VCenter Virtual Appliance stuck in stage 2

I am trying to install the VCenter Virtual Appliance on an ESXI host. I am able to get thru stage 1 just fine. Version is 7.0 U1

For stage 2, i just selected create a new sso domain (using the default vsphere.local) once i get through the rest of the options, it just sits there at Setup is in progress – services on this vcenter server are starting.

Even when i click out of the installer from teh remote machine .. when i login into the vcenter server it just stakes me direclty to the stage part of the install with the spinning progress circle thing.

I read in some forum that you have to add a hosts file or something on the vcenter server before going to stage 2.. is that the issue? it seems silly that you can’t cancel out of the stage 2 portion of the install.

any help would be appreciated.
