Steam and rage pc game

First:i have my copy of Rage pc game(2 DVDs).So i have installed my copy of Steam.
But i am very very confused.I try install my game from dvd disk-thats ok.
but that Steam starts download "patch" for the game.Download speed is 1.4mb/sec and
i have to wait 4 hours! (Almost 20gb patch-i dont think so)
Why steam does not install game from dvd disks?(oh yeah there is 2 disks)
Or am i just old and stupid???
PS Any other methods to install this game??? thank you

your complaining at a 4 hour wait!? that download would take me about 40hours+

the game has installed of the DVD's but its the pre and post release patches that your being made to download. These fix A LOT of the bugs in rage.. and there were a lot.

I brought this point up in an earlier post as my download spead varies from 35kbpsto 280kbps (so your 1.4Mbps is rather impressive now...).

You can download a cracked torrented version of the game, as you own the original version. But without the patches youll be complaining regardless

And my last question:I have tried this method also:
First i shut down Steam and then:
Hit Windows+R key
And write:"C:\program files(x86)\Steam\Steam.exe -install D:"
It starts forced(?)install from DVD disc.So it start install,but then there is
error message:The Steam servers are too busy.... (look pic steam error)
Should i try that forced install offline mode?any other working methods?
And i really dont understand that server error
PS i found that forced install stuff from Steam forum.
thank you

Depending on steam servers i guess

It probally won't take 4 hours ,I had a download that needed 14.6 gb download but steam actually finished it faster then posted

I been use-ing steam for a few years now and never had issues with downlodable content

But look at it this way it is now backed up in the steam files and if you ever need to re-install just have steam redownload it and you won't have to go through install disc like you did before

Also steam could have did it for you with-out the disc but probally would have taken a big chunk of time

Buying the Disc is good but even though it is a pain in the Butt for the DLC

Steam saves your profiles on there data base so when you re build or re install windows just download steam reinstall and your account is right back but you have to download the files again but it shouldn't take as long vs the first time
