What gives? I just bought the retail version earlier this afternoon.

First it takes forever to "prepare files for installation" then after that the ETA starts increasing and NEVER stops. As i am typing this post, the ETA is at 14 days and increasing. Neither progress bar moves at all.

Heh one of my DVD drives is faulty and it has the tendency to not read disks properly. So i installed it in my secondary drive and it works fine after that.
