Fault installing live dvd

When installing to hard drive, when the installer gets to install options there is only one

option, 'standard system'. Then when it gets to installing system files it only installs a

couple then goes straight to Grub. The install fire's up but only gets to a command prompt. Type

'startx' and there no such command. It works fine as a live cd. I have down loaded the .iso 3

times and they are all the same. Seems like only the base system is being installed. Are

there supposed to be more install options, I would like to not install open office and blender.
