  1. I'm trying to set up HDD. I go to drive "E" to set up drive "C". I can't continue because I am receiving this massage.

    "Please wait while Setup initializes
    Scanning system registry..."

    CDR101: Not Ready Reading Drive "E"
    Abort, Retry, Fail?

    Can any one help me on this one?

    You have a dirty/scratched/defective CD.
    Try some carpolish or Brasso copperpolish. Genly rub it on in circular motion only, then rinse off under the tap, and dry with a lintfree cloth.
