You have a drive failure of some kind; Error Code 0F00:137B IDE device failed, probably your optical drive. If you have only one cd/dvd (optical) drive you may not be able to repair the os. I would recommend that you contact dell for warranty repairs.
On the dell dvds that came with your machine , the Operating System Reinstallation DVD is the actual windows vista dvd, the one that would be used in the tutorial.
The name says it all -- 59 and holding permanently
