Unlicensed version of Mach is limited to 500 lines of code so if you load a file with over 500 lines it will only show the first 500 in the toolpath.

Please attach your code here and I will see if it has a problem. To attach the code use the full reply instead of the quick reply. You will then see an button that says additional options. You can then use that to browse to your file and it will be attached to your reply.
 What kind of info are you looking for with regards to machine setup? There are manuals and videos available from the tutorials tab at the top of the screen.

Its all in the manual and also in the videos. The manual is a very good source of info although reading it when new to CNC may be hard going but its definitely worth downloading it and reading through it. The videos give a quicker idea of how to set things up but dont go into as much depth.
 I have loaded your code and it loads fine see screenshot below

Once you get your hardware if you still have p[roblems come back and I am sure we can get you up and running correctly.
