even though there is a caps lock function it doesn't mean that you need to keep in on all the time..

Which OS are you trying to install? You need the OS cd, put the cd in and make sure your computer is booting from the cd drive (to change this go to bios)
Then when you manage to boot from the OS cd just follow the instructions.

Mine works, even though it's not legit.

Sounds like the disc is corrupt.

lol. imo that's his own problem.
Just go and buy the OS disc. If you already have a legit cd key etc, then email microsoft or something and they might send you a new disc.
