I read through that and some people replaced the drive, some burned at a lower speed, and some booted from a flash drive. I don't have a 4gb flash drive and my dvd drive is SATA. I'm going to try to burn at a slower speed and while I'm at it
, I'm downloading the iso again.
Didn't work, even tried burning the disc at 1x. I'll have to wait until the download finishes.

Well, I'm using a SATA drive and it's not working.

I checked in the bios and under SATA it says ide, other options are RAID and something else. IDE seems like the most logical.

I hope this helps you out. also no need to have a serial at install. you can add the serial later and activate it.
I'm trying to insatll 64bit, would it make a difference if those are 32bit? I ended up finding a key as well. Now I just need to get the thing to install.Edited by Mikecdm - 6/18/09 at 7:18pm
