Answers :

2 possibilities here, this is common when the Installation CD is dirty or damaged or the CD/DVD drive is not reading cleanly. An external drive just for the installation may solve the problem.
The second possibility is that the hard drive is dying, we have to change 3 or four a week and generally a hard drive will last 4 years. If this is the problem, changing it is not normally too onerous a task. If its a laptop, sometimes the disc is located under a plate on the bottom of the machine, other times it slides out the side, held in by a couple of screws.

Good Luck
The start of this problem which is only two to two, finished the CD installer or \015\012damage to the player, to which perhaps damaged using another installer or CD \015\012player, good luck
