Exclamation Installation help

Hey there

today i downloaded windows vista (Business Edition) from my MSDNAA website...

i burnt it to a disc and proceeded to reboot, when i 'press any key to boot from CD or DVD' it loads fine, all files are loaded and the scrolling progress bar goes to plan..

then when setup actually commenses, nothing happens, i can just see and use my cursor and the lovely coloured background, nothing happens at all, has anyone else experienced this?

Thanks in advance.
