  • Try a different DVD drive. Also, have you verified the checksum on the downloaded .iso file, and have you verified the quality of the burn (using whatever software you used to burn the .iso to a DVD)?
    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)

    You should verify the checksum of the iso is correct.  You might try using a different computer to get a checksum value of the iso and make sure it matches the checksum posted on the MS website.
