Try using WAMP instead of XAMPP.

Suggest to set max_execution_time to at least 300 and restart apache. This applies to both XAMPP (30) and WAMP (120). Between brackets the current value.

As an alternative you could add line set_time_limit(0); at line 890 of installation/model/database.php
It cancels the time limit imposed on creating tables.
Issue with migrating? Include logs/joomla_update.php in your report!
Blank screen? Verify pagesource for HTML code (javascript error)
Installation failing on populating database? Install with set_time_limit(0)
Document your customizations!
