Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

It sounds like there’s something wrong with the media. Where did you get the installation disk from?

    Denny The user says its a DVD from Microsoft. Is there a way to make sure it is the media? Could they put it on a USB stick?

    Is the media damaged, or otherwise bad? They could just have a bad disk. They should try calling Microsoft for assistance.
