What i found for me when I have problems is to put a dumb switch in between the computer and device your trying to netinstall. Also on a laptop, turn off the wireless. Or if you have more than one network interface disable any extras.

That should work fine, as long as the ethernet cables are not too long, as you get power loss on long cable runs that will lower the voltage by the time it reaches the radio.

If the power is connected the cpu is still running, even when you issue a shutdown in routeros. It just does a unix halt all processes and sits there in an idle loop, there is no way for it to power down if it's like all the other routers i have seen.
