Hi cakirfatih,
> >Press Any key to boot from CD.... screen
that is because the install cd is still in the tray... if the OS is finished install do not press buttons here.  You can remove the install cd to prevent the message...
happy trails

There was no sufficient answer to my original question.  I solved the problem by using Ghost to reinstall.
