Default INstallation Woes

So, I got this game for my son for Christmas and he's pretty bummed I cannot seem to get it installed. During installation it simply Hangs at 22% on the second disk.

The first time it stopped installation with a not responding message.

The second time I tried it after rebooting, it simply stopped installing and hung there at 22% for 10 mins.

So, there is obviously some problem as I read another thread with the same type of issue, but I cannot seem to get mine to work.

I am technically savvy if you can give me some ideas.

I did shut down all of the programs that were running. (except zone alarm)

The disks do not appear to have any damage to them. no scratches etc...

Help is appreciated.

Maybe try making an image of disc 2 then burning it, there is probably no copy protection on disc 2 (I have the DVD version so I don't know if it will work).

If while making the image it doesn't seem to be doing anything then it is probably protected.

Otherwise try and get an exchange.

Ok...

It appears that if for any reason the installer window is not the active window or if you try to multitask during installation and you minimize the installer. The request for the next CD window will not display and you cannot continue with the installation.

Anyway I did get it installed finally by installing from safe mode and not touching a thing until all cd's were loaded.

Now, however the game locks up on me and wants to send an error report to microsoft. Weird. It locks up while it is Loading the game after you see the movies where your teleported through to the aliens and then teleported back through the wormhole. I am trying to play this on a dell dimension 3000 with 1.8 ghz pentium processor 1gig of ram and onboard graphics. Direct X 9c.
