I've gotten a kernel panic 4 times in a row while trying to reinstall lion osx from a flash drive to a reformatted hard drive.  How is this possible when there's "nothing" on my computer?

My SSD failed and I was instructed to reformat my hard drive and restore my files.  I erase my hard drive using Disk Utility and reinstalled Lion from a flash drive. While Lion is installing, I get a kernel panic.  That's happened now four times in a row and I'm befuddled because I don't have anything on my computer to conflict right?  Please help.

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.5), Mid-2009
