First try cleaning the disk.
Wash it gently with luke warm water & mild dish soap.
Dry gently from the inside out in a straight line.
[don't go around the disk in a circle]
Try the disk.
If it still doesn't work your CD drive is in the early stages of failing.
Let the disk start
When you get the error message wait a few minutes & click retry.
Sometimes after the drive cools a bit it will continue.
You may have to do that many times to get Windows installed.
The best bet would be to simply change the drive.
