    help with cd install /trial

    hi
    i have d/loaded file burnt &checked used in built check also
    but when i load try without change option on windows xp pro install the orange bar bounces then goes solid &seems to stall about 3/4 way along the solid bar
    i don`t know whether it`s frozen or resting during install how long should i wait if it is in fact resting ??????
    is it possible to watch a text install to see what the problem is rather than the orange bar??
    any ideas thanks lyle

    For text install, you have to use another cd.

    What are your PC specs? CPU, RAM, graphics?

    Well, your specs are not the problem. I suggest looking around or asking in Wubi section.
