    Q1. Did you check MD5 of the iso that you downloaded?
    If "No", check it..
    If MD5 is fine, then-
    Q2. Did you burn the DVD at a fast speed?
    If "Yes", burn slowly....

    Default Not really a problem after all

    So it turns out that there wasn't anything actually wrong. what i did was try and run it through Virtual Pc 2007 and that is how i got those errors. i'm not sure why. When i actually used it "the right way" there was no errors and the it ran smoothly.

    How do i check the md5? And is there a reason why i get these errors on a virtual system and not on my "actual" system?

    Thanks for the input
