The installer runs through the install until the part where you enter your name and password info. After that I see a spinning circle on the screen for a extended time, and then get this message:
The installer encountered an unrecoverable error. A desktop session will now be run.
After that, it does go to the desktop session. I try to continue with the install and receive the spinning ball.. I left it there for a few hours without any progress.
The Toughbook is a cf-28 p3 800 mhz 30 gig hd 512 ram dvd-rom. It ran win xp & 2000 just fine.
