I dunno why i took too long to figure it out myself, since i usually troubleshoot these things all by myself, but here is the step-by-step guide to do it for dummies, hopefully this comment will save someone some frustrations
1. Download all 4 disks, the associated Serial key file, the noCD file
2. Extract all 4 CD zips and get their ISO, and click on Disk1
3. Click on AutoRun and go through the installation
4. Use the Serial keys you downloaded and punch it in the installer
5. The installer will ask you to insert the disks in sequence, so just keep double clicking the ISO and click yes. using POWERISO I HAD ALREADY CREATED A VIRTUAL DISK SO I HAD TO MOUNT EACH ONE TO THE DISK AND THEN CLICK YES
6. After it finished installing, eject all the ISO, then navigate to where it installed to (should be C:\Program Files (x86)\EA GAMES\Need for Speed Most Wanted )
YOU CAN PRESS EJECT BUT EVEN IF IT COMES UP WITH AN ERROR IT IS FINE
7. Delete speed.exe and replace it with the same file from the noCD file
And that should be it

I keep getting errors when mounting/burning disc 2 of the black edition. I think the ISO is corrupted or something

Nice to see so many good titles here. Thanks to you I can once more bring my positive memories about when I was playing them. Please also don't forget about NFS Carbon!

Hi @DEATHINJUNE, you will need to do some renaming here. If I remember correctly, NFS Underground has speed.exe and NFS Most Wanted has speed.exe. For me, just rename the Underground exe file to NFSU.exe. That way the Most Wanted autorun will show "Install", instead of "Play" (which will run the Underground exe).

How do I install? There is no installer in AutoRun in Disk 1, only a play feature which obv doesn't work and results in a crash when I try it.

@DEVESH KUMAR Either the four regular ISOs or the four Black Edition ISOs, it depends which version of the game you want.

I have installed the game from another ISO but the no CD v1.3 exe does not work on my Win10 PC...do I need to set compatibility to something else? Is there a specific order I need to do everything?

I followed this guide but the game does not launch:

I have followed HEREYOUGO, and the only problem I am having is getting the game to launch when I replace Speed.exe with the NO CD version of Speed.exe. Nothing will launch.

Used to play this game with my friends as a kid a few years after it came out.

No. 16 on the blacklist 2022-05-01 3 points

i own this for xbox and x360. can't play on xbox on account of piss-poor frame rate, and i can't play on x360 since it's a pain to bust out just to play this one game.

idk i figured i'd give this one a shot. so i burned the discs to have a backup, installed, used the no-cd file, and it booted up right away. (the first serial came back invalid but 2nd was fine, but maybe i messed up number/letter on the 1st one)

i plugged in my ps4 controller via usb and it detected it after loading in so i switched two or 3 button maps (gas and brake were buttons so i made them triggers) and i was off the race the number 15 punk on the blacklist.

so happy this worked without too much tweeking. the graphic and resolution options suck but hopefully there's some mods or ini tweeks to fix that.

Best game in the series. Still think about how good this game was every now and again.

Aristotel2003 2022-04-25 23 points

When will NFS Carbon be on MyAbandonware as well?

matti 2022-04-21 24 points

how to start? I installed the game and try to run but I have notice that I have to insert the correct CD. Tried four of them and nothing.

Trusteft 2022-04-21 2 points

thanks for sharing. I already have two copies of the game (retail), but I wanted something like this just for safety.

LazarheaD 2022-04-20 2 points

There are better releases on torrent sites, but it's good that it is catalogued here. Probably my favorite racing game, the best NFS by far.
