    Are you sure you boot from the DVD and not the OS?
    Is the boot order correct.

    Make sure you boot from the DVd
    Boot Priority - Change

    OK, I thought that I could solve the problem. That error code in first post means that the computer cannot read the DVD. Usually means defective DVD or defective DVD drive. USUSALLY

    Things break, I suggest if you have a friend, with the same OS and bit, borrow a CD and see if it works.
    Right now, if you have any other bootable DVD, see if the drive works

    It could be your drive. Until we find out if it is the drive or DVD not much that I can do.
