    have you used this 2003 cd on another computer to install an operating system , you should try to see if it is the source media ( i doubt ) or the hardware (i think)

    Accepted Solution

    The operating system is not successfully installed. It may be because the CD u r using is corrupted. Either use a new CD or try install the operating system again.
