I had a similar glitch when I was installing on a 7200. What version
of the MacOS is installed on the Mac drive? I had to drop back to OS
8.1 to get the installation to work properly. It has something to do
with the disk driver being incompatible with BootX.

You may want to try and get hold of the latest version of BootX
(1.1.3?) to try the install using that instead of the copy on the YDL

Best Regards,
