You might be installing a customize windows service pack 3 that doesn't allowed any upgrades but rather format already.

Solution 1:

Do a fresh install of the operating system in your computer, but make sure to backup all of your files that is important to you.

Solution 2:

Buy another CD or just use Service Pack 2 CD. You can choose from the two but I think I would go to Service Pack 2 and then just update it or download the service pack 3 upgrade package. And also buy a genuine operating system so that it will not be detected as a counterfeited software.

Solution 3:

You can also try cleaning your CD drive and CD Rom first before doing any of the stated above solution.

There are many reasons that can cause this problem. First see your installation disk that whether it has scratches or not if it has the problem, then the problem is that your CD player can’t read the disk so error occurred. So bring another disk to install windows. If you see that your CD disk is OK so it is a problem with your CD drive because your laptop is old your CD drive is also old so it can’t read the disk properly. So you can buy another CD drive and your installation will go normal. That’s all but I recommended you to buy an external DVD drive.
