Answers :

It sounds like there is something wrong with your disc or your DVD drive.

  • Clean the Disc and check for scatches
  • \015\012
  • Run a DVD lens cleaner in the drive
I have seen a DVD drive stop functioning in a similar case... Replaced the drive and continued with no problems.
You also need to format your hard drive.
\015\012This part is important: do NOT run the Windows installation from\015\012Windows itself. Shut down first, and then boot up the machine from CD.\015\012My Dell has a little message as it's booting up that says "Press F12 to\015\012boot from CD," so that's what I did. If you're not sure how to boot\015\012from CD, check your PC's user guide for more info.\015\012
The reason why booting from CD is important is because we're\015\012going to delete the C: drive partition where Windows is installed and\015\012re-format it. You can't do this if Windows booted from C:, because it\015\012can't delete the partition from which it is running.\015\012
