You are pushing SEP client by push deployment wizard or client.exe utility ?

And the system you are unable to install sep cleint are u able to access the c:drive ?

Yes remote registry service need to be enabled for it to work

Is the Remote Registry Service enabled?

From this document

Prepare Windows 8 or Windows Server 2012 computers

Before you deploy, perform the following tasks:

  • Disable the Windows Firewall.

  • Create the registry key LocalAccountTokenFilterPolicy. For more information, visit the following URL:

  • Enable and start the Remote Registry service.

However if you dont want to enable these do you security resons you can manually copy the package and run locally on the box. need to be enbaled just for the install.

from the pdf it says

"you can configure this tool to first remove all competitive products (including Norton products) and then launch the SEP installer automatically and silently"
try to enable the logging and check why its hanging. the log enabling option is in the above pdf
Edit: However here it says Nortan IS is not possible by using sepprep

Have you check this:-

Either TCP port 139 or 445 need to be open for the installation package to be delivered to the remote computer. If UDP port 137 is closed, the Endpoint Protection Manager will not be able to list the hostname of the computer during the initial scan. (Though deployment can still be carried out by manually entering the IP address of the prospective client.)

How (and why) to set the clients to "Classic Mode"
When the client is in Guest Only mode, Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager is not able to authenticate as an administrator. This means that the manager does not have access to push the package to the client.

To configure the client for Guest or Classic mode

  1. On the client, open Administrative Tools Local Security Policy.
  2. Click Local Policy > Security Options Network access Sharing and security model for local accounts. Set this to Classic.
  3. If the client is part of a domain, this policy can be changed at the domain level.
