Awkwardness was one of the words I used, there have been some others ;-).

Thanks again. I had checked the BIOS settings and hadn't seen anything
that would help but I didn't consider a BIOS upgrade, so I'll check this.

No it wasn't the same system at all I just wanted to see if it was a
problem with the CDs or the system. I tried on a different spec system
again and an install is currently underway (i.e. out of three different
systems one doesn't seem to work). So I think it is the one server type
I have a problem with.

I'll look into the BIOS setting again.
