I had this problem once until I discovered that if I took out the CD...then as it rebooted and tried to access the boot CD, and it was not there...I just tapped the eject button and off it went...the set up files are already onboard, it just wants to be sure that everything is kosher elsewhere...then again maybe not :whistling:

Now, that's my system, but it may be worth a try...

Is your hard disk the first boot device in the bios? If not make it the first.
