maybe the error is coming from a hardware issue but before being sure of that just try to get a windows cd with a friend and then try to launch the installation and if the problem persists then this may be the cause of a hardware issue indeed.

Are you sure drive is right?
Yes, of course it is....because of that I've installed pirated XP Professional from my friend. Is there any way to make it genuine(of no cost).
