Could be a damaged disk maybe.

Try copying all the contents of the disk to the hard drive of the PC and see if you can run the setup routine from there.

thanks for the reply I have now installed it to the hard drive but now it gives me the message please ensure battlefield 2142 install disc is in the drive which it is, all my other games play away fine.

One last thing - try making a copy of the disk; Nero is good at "fixing" damaged disks.

It may be that the setup.ini file is empty,you should be able to open it in notepad and see what it says inside it may only say somthing like D/setup or somthing, try changing the D to your drive letter,before you alter it make a copy so you can replace it after if it goes pearshaped.
You can run some games from the HD this way altering the setup to point to the HD not the cd,it doesnt work on all games but on some it does.
