I am a newbie at this but I am having trouble just getting a machine to start up and install WS 2008. Upon start up the installation cd is in the machine and it boots up to show the windows files are loading and then it puts up a command prompt window. The installation should ask for language settings, should it not? Is there a command I need to enter?

This machine was previously owned but was supposedly cleaned up and ready for use. It is a custom machine with XEON Quadcore / 4 GB RAM.

Any help is much appreciated.

Are you sure its definitely been wiped??

Sound almost like your booting into a Server Core installation.
