is this cd going into a new system or old. how much ram is in the system or do you have enough space in your hard drive to install the cd. Did you go into your bios and made sure you can boot from your cd-rom and not the hard drive or floppy. Are you pressing on the space bar or any key when it tells you to down load from cd.
