Hi boopme, with the experience that you have aquired I'm sure your aware that software installations don't always go as planned, it is possible that there was just a glitch...try, try again. Did the disk ask you if you wanted to format the drive first? If I remember correctly you will need to format the drive, and partition it prior to installing the OS.
Another possibility is you could also have a dirty disk, it doesn't take much to disrupt the laser, like the residue of wood smoke, or, God forbid, cigarette smoke, dirt, and when there are children...sticky fingers of a multitude of descriptions.
Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life. You never know when one will leave you.
