    Hi Bets!

    I had a similar problem until I removed some third-party PCI SCSI cards. If
    you have any third-party hardware installed such as these or RAM, remove
    them and try installing again.

    Hope this helps! bill

    Thanks Bill! I removed the PCI cards and 3rd party ram and still the
    computer freezes while starting with the CD boot disks.

    I found an old outdated verion of an OSX CD and strangly it DID boot
    from that. Now why in the worl would it boot from that disk and not
    from any of 4 disks(two 9.2.2 and two 10.1.2) that Apple has supplied?

    Anyone have any idea?

    I can only think that the newer CDs were recorded at a higher speed and that
    your CD drive can't cope. Older produced CDRs were probably written with a
    slower drive.

    One of the problems with CD drives is the aging of the read/write LED, as it
    ages so it gets weaker and the actual LED drive mechanism develops backlash
    (techy servo term). It may be that your drive is getting old if it has seen
    reasonably heavy use.
