Here is what I would do in the following order:
1)Make sure install CD is authentic. If not, try to re-burn the CD or get an authentic version.
2)Make sure CD is cleaned.
3)Completely re-partition your drive and start new format (NTFS is good)
4)Return your CD and get another copy. CD is bad.
5)Try another CDROM. Once Windows is installed, switch back and see if it works. Maybe a defective CDROM.
