Hello there! Is your newly-formatted disk using the "C:" designation or another drive letter? If the latter, I've seen that cause problems with some installers (though not TurboTax specifically); you can usually work around that by copying the files on your installation CD to a folder on your computer desktop, and then running the installer from there.

Fingers are crossed here that the fix is that simple, but -- if not -- let me know and we'll keep working to get this installed for you!
