    • “Setup is unable to initialize the setup program. There may be a scripting error.”
    • “Setup is unable to load the installation script file.”
    • “Unable to create a directory under C:\Windows\System. Please check write-access to the directory.”
    • “X:\ unavailable.” (where “X” is the drive letter for your CD-ROM drive)
    • “Device not ready.”
    • “Error reading CD-ROM.”
    • “Error reading device X:\” (where “X” is the drive letter for your CD-ROM drive.)
