    The error indicates that the installer cannot decompress a file. This can happen if the CD-ROM is dirty or damaged, if hard disk space is insufficient, or if the installer conflicts with an application or device driver.

    You could try copying the contents of your CD-ROM (or the essential folders) to your HD or a network drive/USB key. You will soon find out if there is dirt or damage on the CD, and if not, you can easily then install from your HD or network drive/USB key.
