Is your disk an original, or a copy? If its a copy its probably not a Bootable Disk. You will have to go into windows explorer and click on your CD Drive letter with the Disk In. Then Click Setup. Good Luck.

    > HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
    > (default) reg_sz (value not set)
    > HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
    > (default) Reg_sz (value not set)


    This can be caused by a blank entry, such as can be left behind by
    an incomplete program removal, in the
    HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run and/or
    HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run keys. It can also
    be caused by an entry in these same keys that starts with a " / ."
