SATA or PATA? You may have to tinker with the Master/slave/Cable select jumpers on the PATA. If its SATA. Make sure your board supports the drive. SATA comes in two flavors. One 1.5GB/s and 3GB/s Most older boards take SATA 1.5GB/s Western Digital Drives have a Compatibility jumper that may allow you to solve your current issue. Please post back with any updates or any additional information. The more information you can provide will lead to a better understanding to your problem and allow us to get right to the fix for you. In this case. More is better. Also if you haven't been welcomed into Bleeping Computer. Well here it is :thumbsup:

To be more specific, it sounds like your CD drive is faulty.

Clean the disk by washing it with lukewarm water & very mild dish soap.
Wash lightly !
Rinse well
Dry with a soft paper towel by going from the center of the disk straught out .
[Don'y go in circles around the disk]

Try the disk again .
If it still doesn't work you need a CD drive.

[I've had a nicly smudged fingerprint cause a disk read error]
OCZ StealthXstream 700W,Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3R , E8500, Arctic Freezer Pro 7, 3GB G.Skill PC8500,Gigabyte Radeon HD 4850 OC [1GB ], Seagate 250GB SATA II X2 in RAID 0, Samsung SATA DVD burner.

Humm I'm starting to wonder if Maybe the CD is Scratched or dirty in some way. Have you installed your system once before with this exact CD. If So. Just make sure it's clean the CD. Also I would recommend CD-Rom Cleaners. Dual brush system could work wonders. Sometimes Dust settles onto the lens of the laser pickup. http://www.amazon.com/Allsop-56500-CD-Lase...r/dp/B00000J1QK is that Device that will clean the lens. Also If you have inspected the CD. I Think it may be a CD-Rom Issue. What you then would do. Swap out the drive with another one temperately just to see if it will go into the next stage of System Setup. If It works. I would think the drive may have gone bad or dust has gotten inside and cause a problem with inside the Drive it self. Most likely the cooperate would be the laser lens

Best of luck to you sir. Hope this helps further you to a resolution of this problem you are currently facing.
