Sorry for the long wait.

If so, did you check the CD if it is corrupted?

Get the latest firmware/driver for your CD/DVD Drive. This was the reason Vista wouldn't boot for me but I still could read CDs/DVDs. Just not boot.

Try the "alternate" installation CD or the server CD instead of the live CD. I frequently have issues with the live CD on various machines.
