Forums: Index > Help desk > PC GOTY install not working

Ok, so I just bought the GOTY V2 (the DLC Disc one) and when I go to install it, i get an error message that is very vague, any help would be appreciated (or the folder layout, so i can just extract the files from the .cab file manually (full install tree)) here's the error (EDIT: the error happens just after this)

did you ever have any version of borderlands for PC Icon installed?   Dr. F    Chemicalweapon   Wordpress shovel   Boston globe bullhorn  12:24, October 7, 2011 (UTC)

nope this was going to be my first install, but then that happened, so I came here and 2k support for help. Sig Attempt 12:38, October 7, 2011 (UTC)

how many optical drives do you have? how many partitions on your hard drive(s)?   Dr. F    Chemicalweapon   Wordpress shovel   Boston globe bullhorn  13:09, October 7, 2011 (UTC)

only 1 optical drive 1 750GB HDD w/ 1 partition w/ 300GB free (just out of curiosity: why does that matter?) Sig Attempt 14:55, October 7, 2011 (UTC)

possibly the installer would have been confused about source/destination. also you might try and see if steam will acept the key(s). if it does that might be easier and avoid the securom thing.   Dr. F    Chemicalweapon   Wordpress shovel   Boston globe bullhorn  19:01, October 7, 2011 (UTC)
i would do that, but it would use all my dl's if it works because i use mobile internet and i only have around 2GB left and it would take ages to dl and this error occurs before i even select a drive so i agree that it could be confused about the source, so maybe if i use the IDE DVD drive from my old PC that could work.

you are installing from a sata optical drive then?   Dr. F    Chemicalweapon   Wordpress shovel   Boston globe bullhorn  23:49, October 7, 2011 (UTC)

yeah. (EDIT: so... could the problem potentially be the kind of disc drive that i'm using?)Sig Attempt 22:30, October 17, 2011 (UTC)

any progress?   Dr. F    Chemicalweapon   Wordpress shovel   Boston globe bullhorn  21:14, October 26, 2011 (UTC)
Yeah, I finally got around to sending a message to GBX and they replied w/ really helpful info, it installed perfectly and runs, so i decided to get the oasis and TCN, but when I go to load TCN it just stops working (i do have dr. zeds BL patch (or whatever it's called)so it should be working). Sig Attempt 22:50, October 26, 2011 (UTC)

care to share that really helpful info? or do you have an NDA w/ GBX? 22:57, October 26, 2011 (UTC)

I'll put the message up when I get home. Sig Attempt 02:26, October 27, 2011 (UTC)
