I believe you're right, only mine doesn't, it gives a post beep and around it goes again, and again and ag----
"Edit" I just tried to install it again,this time i choose "Use existing partitions" but the result is the same. I'm now going to try a 2010 version. If that works maybe it's my disk thats at fault?
How odd! the 2010 disk installed a treat, no problems whatsoever so perhaps it is the disk at fault. I'll grab up a new one and try that.
And thats what i did, and it worked fine. So who knows? Maybe a bad download or maybe a bad disk but it's working just fine now.
Thanks to those who offered me there kind advice
