A disc read error occurred when booting

Asked By 200 points N/A Posted on -

Hi all ,

How can I pursue the Installation when these error messages flash on the screen?

A Disk read error occurred. Press Ctrl+Alt+Del

I have Asus desktop computer with an old operating system Windows 98 and have to change it to Windows Vista.

My CD installer of Windows Vista is genuine license. After booting the devices in BIOS set up when I inserted and read the CD from the CD ROM after 30 mins of loading the warning message came out.

I repeat the consequences but still that error still exists.

Why the error is came in to think that the installer is copyright? Is it the installer have a problem even if it is the original copy?

Please help everyone.

Dear, there may be many problems in it.

  1. Dear, possibly you didn’t boot properly from BIOS, so I will suggest you to once again check the BIOS settings,
  2. If BIOS settings are perfect than also it is possible that your installer is corrupted or may be not a bootable CD or software.
  3. Also there may be case of your CD/DVD drive as you told that 30 min it takes and then it give the error which you mentioned in the picture image, so there is a probability also about the drive so you should also try with some different CD/DVD drive, if it is working in other drive it means that your software is fine but your drive is not fine.

Hope these steps will help you to overcome your errors.
