    Clean the CD and try it again.. Or clean the optical drive unit (CD/DVD) Once scratch on the CD can cause problems. When you installed Windows did you do a delete enter L enter on the HDD? Then you said you did a full NTFS format...

    Check the cables (replace with known good ones if you have any), check to be sure they are seated properly, check your disk for scratches/blemishes, check your RAM with memtest.
