Question about Computers & Internet
If you have a disk read error it may be the actual HDD IN the laptop, and NOT so much the actual recovery DVD...
Perhaps your DVD unit is faulty, OR the actual DVD itself? To find out, if you get a USB to SATA/ATA DVD Dongle, And test on another PC. Then you could try this as the boot device, and select Boot from removable device in the BIOS, IF it DID BOOT with the original DVD disc, than all good.. Proceede with the recovery.
If NOT, and it still will not read and gives same errors, then you most likely have a faulty, recovery DVD, and you should obtain another. I say this as that Recovery DVD has failed in two boot devices, the actual laptop's and now the USB DVD dongle, and are of differing types, so it is unlikely that BOTH ways of DVD reading would be faulty.
This is of course AFTER you proved your HDD is A OK, again the ONLY way to do this is to use that USB to SATA/ATA DVD/HDD Dongle, and hook up the drive to another PC, and see if the drive is OK, If it is OK, then Your HDD is OK, You may even have to perform a CHKDSK, to check. if the HDD is OK, then problems lay elsewhere, the HDD can now be returned to the laptop.
