Sorry to disagree but he said he had re-formatted. This KB article only applies when upgrading the OS.

I assmume your are using a full version CD and not an upgrade version , and that you don't have an OS set up on another hard disk.

There may be a problem with the CD. Try cleaning the CD. Other users with this problem during a clean setup eventually made it work if they kept trying.
