  • Hi,

    You may have a problem with your media or you might not have enough ram.  You really need at least 512MB of RAM.  Also when you burn your DVD don't use the max speed and use burning software that does verification such as ImgBurn (Free) http://imgburn.com/

    Cheers,

    Try a different DVD drive.

  • What hardware are you installing this on?
    I noticed the same thing when installing on my new gigabyte mobo, but it was related to the bios not whs.
