Am running WinXP SP2. All attempts to run from Windows have been a bust. After configuring the activity to perform, and after the reboot takes place, the software hangs at 1% or 3% of the first procedure (0% of total). Made the boot CD, and the entire thing ripped right along without a hitch. Not sure why I'm having this problem, but if you are, go ahead and build the boot disk and run it from that instead. May resolve your problems.
