have you checked with url ? - sometimes it showing 99% due to few configuration of server , but magento 2 is already installed.
so check with the url you have setup magento2 , also check admin as well.
if its not works then post the error log here , so its help us to troubleshoot the issue.
Magento 2 developers can't even make a procedure to install the software. Somebody needs to get fired asap.
Well , i understand you face the issue on installation level.
But As per my experience with magento 2 since last couple of years , its very easy to use and install.
if you have well defined all the software requirements completed and ready and also if you have followed the fully technology stack of magento 2 , then you will never get installation issue.
Kindly let us know currently where you stand so we can help you out on troubleshoot the issue
Take this as food for thought: Install Magento and after install any platform that is direct competition to it. See for yourself which one is easier to install.
The current install process is not acceptable. Once you install any CMS, you should be able to use it afterwards without any workarounds or headaches.
The installation process is a pain for a lot of people(check forum posts)
I understand your statement and situation both.
But as i mention above if all things are ready and handy on server level . then installation of magento 2 its too easy.
Anyways . Thanks !!
please install using ssh
php bin/magento setup:install --base-url=http://mydomain.com/magento/ --db-host=localhost --db-name=magento_storedb --db-user=magento_user --db-password=magento123 --admin-firstname=Michael --admin-lastname=Gotiashvili --firstname.lastname@example.org --admin-user=admin --admin-password=admin123 --backend-frontname=admin_magento --language=en_US --currency=USD --timezone=Asia/Tbilisi --cleanup-database --sales-order-increment-prefix="ORD$" --use-rewrites=1 --session-save=file

Hope it will help you.
