Postby Combat21 » Wed May 11, 2011 13:04

The causes of this are:
The disk has an abrasion so the files cannot be read. (scratched physicaly)
The disk is dirty (clean it)
The cdrom drive is fail and needs replacing.

you put an upgrade cd in and not a fully fledged recovery disk

Try booting from another bootable disk ie DIFS linked here is an ISO image - made on another machine with working dvd drive ofcourse.
