There is almost nothing more you can try if your PC can't read CD-ROM and bootup.

Do you have spare CD-ROM to try out?

Where did you get the CD...that you are trying to install from?

System manufacturer and model?

Why are you trying to reinstall Windows on top of another install? Why not a clean install?

<<now my computer will not read my cd rom>>

What's the exact error message?

I believe what you have is remnants of the old operating system on the drive which are blocking the CD from loading, as far as I know the only way to fix that is to do a full format using a floppy disk. Most HD manufacturers have a down loadable program for this, if your does not there are solutions on the web to make up a disk.
