    i would suggest trying using a bootable 4gb+ usb pendrive and copying the dvd to it (Should be around 3gb) then run the installer from that, I often find when repairing peoples laptops that the dvd drives are often quite poor grade.

    ok a pendrive is just another name for a USB memory stick, personally I use this guide which is used via the command prompt found in start/ accessories

    take great care as doing this wrong could wipe a hard drive on the host machine, once it's been done you often need to select in the PC's bios to enable boot for USB, some models will have this set automatically if it detects one plugged in, other models will not and will require editing of the bootup options or have a special F-key to perform the option.
