    New laptop, vista wont install Battlefield 2

    Any one got any solutions to my problem, I ve tried contacting ea and they
    are not much help. The new laptop is a HP PAVILION DV9260 fully loaded with
    HD drive and nvidia ge force 7600 graphics card with 256mb dedicated memory.
    The game is battlefield 2 with the extra expansion pack. It loads the first
    disk then asks for the second and when the second disk is in it says to
    reload the first and restart the installation. Please anyone can you help. I
    think its vista related.

    When you insert the second disk, when the autorun pops-up, just ignore it or
    cancel out of it and the install should continue.

    I had to use the "run as administrator" to get it to install.
