I solved the issue. When I chose None in the scenery download screen, I then picked the areas I wanted. This allowed the install to ignore a long install time for all areas.

When the program indicated insert disc 2 and started to load the second disk it did not have to install all the areas which resulted in a quick disk pop out. Indicating insert disk 3.

When I inserted Disk 3 I did not hear my DVD spool up, but looking at the screen I could see files being downloaded. That was my mistake, I did not allow the program to do it's work.

Being a first timer at this and not very good on computers it was a challenge after 5 attempts.

By the way it took just under 7 hours to install. Put your feet up and enjoy.

The program is up and running and now attempting to tweak the flight controller.
