The computer boots, goes into bios just fine, I have everything basically default there aside from changing it to boot from CD (So I can install windows).
Well, it starts (Unpacking, I guess) files to start the install ... I don't even make it to the screen where you can format a partition.
The last few times it froze it's made it to "Windows is loading mount point services". But it has stopped at other various places too.
I can hear the CD/DVD rom spinning up as it unpacks this stuff, then I hear it spin down and everything is frozen. (I can tell it's frozen because I can no longer switch num lock or caps lock on and off ... I've left it sitting there for about 10-20 mins just to make sure it's not just a long part of the process).
I'm going to try using a different CD rom, and if that doesn't work than a different hard drive ... and if that doesn't work a different CD ... but any other advice is welcome.
Thanks in advance,
