Hey folks

Recently I had a HD that died on me and had to replace it with the new HD on my G4. (Hitachi crap for good Seagate drive)

I was attempting to re-install LW 8 from the CD-ROM when the installer freeze up for no reason. It froze in the second step (the Read Me segment) and I couldn't continue onto the next step. I had to force-quit the installer, relaunch it and I still get the same result! :confused: :mad:

Any idea? Do I have a bad CD-ROM? I have the LW key plugged into the USB when I was attempting to install LW 8. Do I have to install LW 7.5 just to get LW 8 installed?

I appreciate any help or feedback.

Rob

Have you tried turning off any screen savers or energy saver settings. This could easily interfer with installs. Good Luck!
