I am trying to install - but on the initial personal setup, the setup won't copy files from the cd. The cd is a legitimate cd, it hasn't any scratches or anything.

I've tried several times and get different files not being copied each time.

Anyone give me any advice - I'm getting VERY frustrated.

Hello kevb8ll,

Do you get any error messages? Also, how long do you leave it to copy the files?

You could try running a diagnostic test on the hard drive on ensure that's not the problem. If you go to the website of the manufacturer of the drive they should have a bootable diagnostic test that you can download and burn to a CD.

You might also want to clean the laser in your CD drive to rule that out as the source of the problem.
