Vista build : 5342, Installation problem

Discussion in 'Windows Vista General Discussion' started by Christian Ista, Mar 28, 2006.

  1. Hello,

    I do this :
    - boot on DVD, no problem
    - Insert key, no problem
    - select target partition, no problem
    - I select "Custom installation" (the only option available)
    - I select the partition, no problem
    - I format, no problem

    But when the installer says "Installing Windows", I have a message :
    "Install Windows - Insert disc - Please insert Windows installation disc1".

    What can I do ?

    The DVD is still in the the DVD player of course ;-)

    I'm on a DELL Inspiron 8600C - 1.5GbRam and 60Go hard drive.

    Thanks,

  2. Did you open the Disk drive and close it back and try again?

  5. hmm, my best suggestion right now is to burn the ISO again, but make sure
    you burn it a very low speed, 2x and try running setup again.

  6. You'd be surprised how much the slow burning helps :eek:)

    Well, impossible to reduce the speed burning :(.

    Then I tried on a DVD+R .... same problem.


    Thanks,
