Hello and welcome to the windows7forums.

I would try re-burning the ISO at it's slowest speed (1x) and make sure you use a good quality name brand DVD.

Try using imgburn:
The Official ImgBurn Website

Also, perform a "clean" install, not an upgrade.

Is it ok if I use PowerISO instead?

I've never used it personally, have always used Imgburn.

Why not download and try Imgburn. If it doesn't work, simply uninstall it.

Imgburn will also verify the image.

Are you trying a "clean" install or an upgrade?

Is it 32-bit or 64-bit?

Unplug all your USB devices, printer/scanner, any external USB drives as well.

You might also want to pull a couple sticks of RAM out also.

Run the install again.

BTW, did you try Imgburn?
