why cant you just use the 2000 cd to do a repair with out the boot ****s?
I didn't realise that I could boot from the CD. Yeah ok.

what is your cd-rom drive's speed? 52X?
is the disc faulty? (if so burn a new one)
is your Hard drive busted?
I have a DVD R/W that has a 40x CD speed.
I don't think the disc is faulty.
How can I test for this? It's brand new so I'm not sure.
So I got out a Windows XP CD and I'm installing that now after reformatting. I'm also writing down the time each step takes but right now the file copy is so slow... the only reason I know it's still going is because the files being copied changes every once so often in the bottom corner. The progress bar hasn't moved in the last 20 minutes from 38%.
