You're installing Drupal and, for whatever reason, /sites/default/default.settings.php is missing. When you submit the "Set up database" form, the installation doesn't move to the next step, and it doesn't give you any error message.
default.settings.php shouldn't be missing, but it will halt the installation if it is, leaving the user clueless as to what's wrong. Not good.
