    Tried the 32bit disc and it went right to setup for install but the 64bit disc just grinds away in the drive.
    I tried a few other discs and they work fine, how do I get a replacement for this thing? Or is there a work-around for this?

    Running 64bit vista currently with no problems.

    So, if you boot from the x64 it does nothing? If you are running a x64 bit system, you can install from within the OS, just copy the files over or use the disc without booting to it.

    If you need a replacement, I have to assume you bought it, but where, and will that entity replace it. Or, use those files to make your own bootable DVD.

    The disc seems to be dead, can't even read the files on it. Got it from best buy online during that pre-order thingy.

    Dude that is apparently happening to me also. I got mine from the newegg pre-order bonus and it so far appears dead.
