Hello Siva,

Remove your memory sticks clean them and reset back in slots and start again the installation process ,if you have a sata hard drive be sure to disable sata and unplug other usb devices except your external cd writer from which you are booting,does your laptop have cd drive included?if yes then why using external one?

Thanks
I don't have external cd drive
