I hear you, but do you get disk 0 to the point where it shows only unallocated space?

Hi,

I just want to inform you it sounds like the media is either bad or the HDD is going out on you, possible whatever hardware is connected to it as well.

Options you can try:

Burn the media at slowest speed to DVD-R and setup "Boot Sequence" in BIOS to load DVD ROM first. I would definitely load your BIOS to latest version as topgundcp suggested. That should be move 1. The second step is try the DVDR method mentioned. The OS that way will be read from a source you can verify is burned slowly with proper CRC.

@KentC
This is a known problem with most DELL Laptop, Once you update the BIOS then everything else is clear.
