Is it a copied DVD? If so, it may have been burnt at too high a speed.

It is a original printed Microsoft DVD, I am about to try it in another drive. Thanks.

It is a HP Compaq dc760 SFF Base unit. I have it working OK now after an upgrade re-install. It was the internal DVD drive failing to read the disk properly, worked OK in an external USB drive. Batch's link gave me the clue. Thanks to all.
