View Full Version : BW 7.0 d/n install on 1.8 proc white boxes?

BW 7.0 installs fine on 2.0 gHz processor machines in our office, but not on 1.8's. Install progresses about 90% through disk #1 and then hangs. 1.8 machines we're trying to load have vanilla Win XP SP2 and hotfixes, no anti-virus, no other 3rd-party software, 256mb RAM, 32mb video RAM. Does BW 7.0 exhibit problems with system BIOS maybe? Seems proc and/or BIOS is only conceivable source of install probs; maybe certain RAM configurations???

6.0 installed fine on all these machines.

Please advise.

Could it be that all of the problem machines have the same make/model CD drive? If so what is it?

As a work around try copying the entire contents of your disc 1 to a folder on your hard drive. (You can name the folder anything, but for example just name it "test" and put it on your desktop.) Then start the installation by double clicking the file setup.exe in the test folder.
