Probably not. The sound you describe happens when a CD is not well balanced
on the spindle (which is pretty common these days). It normally doesn't
damage the drive or the disk--it just sounds bad.

And since the disk was for the wrong OS, your system would not have done
anything with the data on it.

Until next time....

the machine or device hasn't been invented that a human cannot abuse or
misuse. Me for instance: my camera came with two software-CDs.

(of course I read a few lines in the instruction
booklet) and shoved in one of those. A noise like some mini-copter landing
came from the comp., no installation dialog showed up, and the drive was
blank!

By now it is obvious that I am on x OS, and the 'other' CD was for y.

==
The question now is, the installation with the right CD took a long time
does it take so long?
Did I damage the CD thingie or something?


Thanks and regards,
Sankara S Rajanala
