    I Usually Get This . . .

    Press any key to boot from the DVD or something like that. If you press a key, it boots from the DVD and if you don't it will time out and boot from the hard disk.

    Gonna start over as I selected enter then 1 then 2 and nothing happened. Should this screen have normally appeared during the middle of install?

    I should of taken out dvd when it was done with step finishing up so that option of boot from cd-rom would not of come up. Worked fine after that.
