Question about Blizzard Entertainment StarCraft Battle Chest for Windows, Mac

Pc freezes when installing StarCraft Battle Chest

So.... here we go....

My PC freezes when installing StarCraft "Battle Chest". At first I thought it was my PC simply being an *** but, no, once I get the first disk out of the way and I'm prompted for the second disk which is "Brood war". I put the little baddie in and 5 or 10 seconds later my PC simply freezes... as in the image of what I was doing is still on the screen but my mouse cursor won't move and I can't access start menu, task manager or even restart with key commands. Ive restarted and checked for any programs that may be running in th background to interfere but that's not the case.

    I have a few questions.

    Have you ever installed it on this computer before? if so, make sure the DISC is as close to a pristine condition as you can make it.

    To remove minor scratches and dirt, use hot water and tooth paste. Put a good amount of paste on your fingers. Then spread it across the disc anywhere. **RUB the paste in ONE WAY only, never in a circle. do this for about 2 minutes and rinse it while rubbing the disc one direction. Dry it in one direction only as well. Use** the whole hand instead on one finger. That makes a better even pressure on the disc. The tooth paste has micro abrasive particles in it and you need to be even handed.

    Keep in mind, Microsoft wants you to maintain a minimum of 15% of the Hard Drive free

    .If you see you are running out of space on the Hard Drive, you may consider an "External Hard Drive". Do you have at least 15% free?

My battle chest only came with starcraft disc one and the brood was expansion. What is disc 2?

In the new versions of the battle chest, the installer installs both starcraft and brood wars. You only need one cd key, and when it asks for disk two it wants the brood wars disk

Im trying to install Starcraft Battle Chest but it keeps asking for a second disc what should i do?

I had the same problem, just put the expansion disc in the drive, that is the second disc they just didn't label them that way. It is the greenish grey looking disc, that is actually disc 2. Please give me thumbs up.

When I install Starcraft, it ends up as a failure to install

Go to Setup an account. After you do, you can register your cd keys and just download the game so that you don't need to use the disks at all.

No second install disk!!

If you put in the Brood War expansion cd, the installation will resume. Apparently that's the 2nd disc. It also shows up as SCDisc 2 under computer in the start menu.

Problem installing StarCraft Battle chest

1. Switch off your antivirus software.
2. Locate the folder(s) mentioned in error message, click with right mouse button on them and then untick "Read only" checkbox (choose second option in next window).
It works fine for me under Win XP (SP3)
