Need For Speed Most Wanted Won't Install? Here's How!!

I searched Google for two days with every variation of Need for Speed Most Wanted failed installation help I could think of.

I ran the autorun with admin privileges and copied disk one to a hard drive to start the installation but all together and separately failed.

I finally came upon a Linux installation guide on linux-gamers.net that showed exactly how to get it installed.

I tried this on my Vista x64 installation. Just FYI, I also installed the RC1 of SP1 a few days ago too!

For the unabridged version go here: linuX-gamers.net - Howtos - Running "Need for Speed: Most wanted" with Cedega

If you're only getting the directx 9.0c error which halts the installation process at the EULA, you can:

1. Copy disk 1 to a 2nd hdd other than C.

2. Edit autorun.cfg in the autorun folder of the copied contents of disk 1 on your hard drive. You can use notepad to edit the file. The only edits you need to make are:

DirectXVersion=0
StartMenuDXEULA=0

3. Save the file and installation runs without a hitch!

You're welcome!

Hello bsvarma,
If you have a legal copy of the game, try a No CD patch.
Hope this helps, good luck and post your results.
