when you download it, click it, it will ask you to insert a formatted blak floppy and it will write to it. Reboot and boot from the floppy and use fdisk first to delete and make a new partition and then format c: yes

Reboot and insert the cd

Your pc is all screwed up. humm.....Reboot and then try. Is your Hard drive the c: drive or is it different? Is it set as slave? Do you have it on the same IDE as your Cd drive?
