Hello Archie - welcome to the forums.

Have a look at this..  I suggest you print it so that it's readily available when you want to start the Recovery Console..

Good luck

Do you have a real WIndows CD as opposed to some sort of restore CD? If so, this should get you going:

How are you "going to setup" exactly? What do you see on the screen? What does the CD say on it word for word?
