hello :D i am new to this forum and i have bought Half-Life for
the very purpose of playing this game :D

OK let's get down to the problem every time i click the installer
it says: would you like to Uninstall ESF first? and clearly i haven't
installed ESF before.. if i click yes nothing seems to happen if i
click no it will proceed with the installation but when it gets to
the part where i i choose the path file i cannot click the Install
button :( please help :D

Is half-life currently installed in your steam?
Are you changing the path or using the default?

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\<username>\half-life"

^ That is the path you are supposed to install ESF in. If the install button still does not show up, make sure you have loaded Half-Life atleast once so that it can create the necessary folder.

Let us know how it goes.

No dumdums. Its an error as old as STEAM itself >.<

If the button is grayed out, that means that he is lacking all the proper files.

Just installing HL isnt enough, you also have to start it and run it. Just start the tutorial level and walk round a but. By doing that STEAM will unpack some extra files from the GCFs and after that you should be able to click the install button.
