My final attempt. I relized my cd had mucho fingerprintos on it. I cleaned it. I am an id10t. 78% along the base install, so far so good, I'll keep my fingers crossed. base install part 2, is installing, that hasnt happended before... i don't wanna jinx my progress though. Failed. Stuck at 44% on base install part 2. just stopped, and i have no idea why, i let it go for about 20 min and nothing happend
