Thanks for the info, this is the second time I've tried to install from CD, and the same thing has happened twice.I have diabled my virus and firewall, and stopped anything else in the backgound prior to installation. What am I doing wrong. Thanks
I tried that , and upon reboot was told to uninstall SP2 as it hadn't completed the install. Couldn't do that as the PC wouldn't boot to the desktop to access the control panel, so had to do a system restore from safe mode. Thanks for your help, I will close this now as I am starting to get responses over in the other forum.
