OK, i did this topic this morning also, but no one would give me a straight answer, just "try again". anyways, I tried reinstalling BG2 and at about 92%, it came up with a critical error on the cd, so i took it out and put it back in. Then about 5 secs later, it asked for Disc 3, then 4 within 3 seconds of each other, then i put them in, then after disc 4, it asked for a disc 5!! I dont have ToB so what is goin on?!?

Does it actually read or do any file transfers from disc 3 or 4?

What is the critical error text? Which cd was in the drive when you got the critical error?

Could be a registry problem. If you've had BG2 installed sucessfully in the past, you may have a corrupt registry because you didn't finish the install (through no fault of your own). If you feel comfortable doing so, check RegEdit and see if there are any registry fragments for BG2. If you uninstalled correctly the first time, you shouldn't see anything.

heheheh... ive seen this problem before. did you have the merchant disc5 patches downloaded and installed when you last uninstalled? if so, im afraid thats your problem. im also afraid that i dont know how to solve it, dont remember that... however, now that i have identified the problem for you, perhaps someone else can help you. or you can just do a search for 'Disc 5'. you should get an answer then.

The error came up on Disc 2 at the very end; and no Disc 3 & 4 didnt do anything. So what should i do?..im thinking about changing CD roms and see if that does it, if it doesnt i will have to consult superior advice (my dad who is a comp. tech) thanks for the replies guys/girls
