    So after some hard work I finally got windows installed on my mac.

    I did so because I needed to run a program called 20-20 design for work.

    About halfway through the install i got this:

    Error: Data Error (Cyclic Redundancy Check)

    Right before this happens the disc kind of slows down and then completely stops.

    I googled this error and it says more than likely its a bad cd or dvd?

    Could this be an issue with my new partitioned hard drive?

    It's either the CD/DVD or the CD/DVD reader. Try it on another computer if possible. I had a badly scratched disk that would not install on one of my computers and it gave me that error.

    Make sure the DVD/CD is clean as even a greasy fingerprint can cause read errors.
