    Have you got Steam turned off when you run the install E option?

    Yes, it was.
    The only other thing I can think is to check that E: is the drive with the disc in it, and that the disc is properly seated.

    Try to stop the download on steam by
    -> delete local content of *GAME* on steam
    ->exit steam
    ->put in Cd1
    -> press start button
    -> and depending on your OS and where you have steam installed and whats your dvd-drive letter type in the "run" box "c:\program files (x86)\steam\steam.exe -install E:"
