Where did you get the disk from?

If it was a downloaded ISO, download it again & check that the file's hash matches the original using something like click here.

If the hashes match, then burn it again. But this time burn it on the lowest possible speed. G

Well it is indeed an actual file from the DVD so do as Crossbow7 says or if you have a retail disk then give it a good clean.

Jeepers, couldn't have done it without your valuable contribution and your generously given time to find and rectify my troubling problem.
I'd be trawling the net still if it wasn't for you.
Many, many TA's.........

No problem francis toboni, you're welcome :-). Thanks to rdave13 for posting your pm in the thread.

Would be nice to know what actually worked, so can you mention this in the thread please?

Likewise with another thread of yours click here - if possible. Thanks, G
