its having problems reading the cd. Regardless of how clean it may look, give it a wipe :)
Also, try a different cd rom drive.

tried cleaning cd and new cd rom still keeps stopping when loading windows and cannot reboot at end as reboots with it saying boot failure reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device m also cannot access my bios at reboot ?
