There are three reasons for this
1. Carefully, clean the surface of the installation DVD. It needs this file to even start.
2. It could be the drive itself needs a Cleaning disc.
3. Have you checked the region, do other DVD`s play OK
My computer, right click the drive, click Properties and check that you are in the Region for your country.. Region 2. if UK.
4. If none of those work, try copying the DVD to your hard drive in a New folder, if you are not sure how to do this come back and I will guide you and then install from the copy.
Try 1 & 3 first and if you have a DVD cleaning disc try 2.
If that does not work we will go to 4, if it copies it will install.

INSTEAD OF FOUR IN THE FIRST POST, COPY TO HHD, TRY THIS IT MAYBE SOMETHING ELSE IS STOPPING THE INSTALL

Click Start
In the little window at the bottom that has the words “Start Search”, type msconfig & Press enter
In MS Config,
Under the “General” Tab,
Click the “Selective Startup” button.
This should make two check boxes available to be changed.
Leave the “Load SystemServices” Check box checked.
Then clear “Load StartUp Items” checkbox.
Now select the “Services” Tab
Click the “Hide All Microsoft Services” Check box at the bottom left.
Click the “Disable all” button at the bottom right.
Click “Apply”
Click “OK”
Observe the message that pops up titled “System Configuration”
You may need to restart your computer to apply these changes.....
Click the “Restart” Button.

Computer Restarts
Put the Office DVD in the drive.
Do the install including entering the product key.
After Office 2007 has been installed
Click Start
Enter msconfig and press Enter.
In the “General” tab, click the “Normal Startup” radio button.
Click “Apply”
Click “OK”
Observe the message that pops up titled “System Configuration”
You may need to restart your computer to apply these changes.....
Click the “Restart” Button.
Computer Restarts
All good

Hi
Thanks for replying; I've completed steps 1 & 3 to no avail. I've tried number 4 but all my searches come back with "msconfig not found" !?:mad:

Hi
sorry for taking so long but with work and kids... well.
As for solution 4 I can get as far loading office but I get the same message when trying to start the setup. Just a point on solution 4 when I select selective start up I have 4 checked boxes 1, process SYSTEM.INI file 2. process WIN.INI.file 3 and 4 are as you have stated but also with a option on the bottom stating "orginal BOOT.INI

Might some of these selection stop it from working?

Many thanks for your help so far

Couple of questions.
Is this a genuine disc, brand new, out of the box disc or a copy ?
When it trys to install does it get to the screen where it asks for the license key ?
Can you pop it into another machine to see if it gets to the license screen ?
Can you login as a different user to see if it installs ?

Obviously it does not get as far as the Product Key, as per his first post.

Macboatmaster, If you look at the Computer Specifications for NoEight you will see the version of Office the poster is trying to install.

I think Miggs asked a very good question
Is this a genuine disc, brand new, out of the box disc or a copy?
