  • It would help if you told us the computer make and model and the configuration you are using.  Don't install the WDP on a production or primary computer.  Just for the record, I don't think you made a CD.  Isn't it a DVD?

  • You may have a corrupted download. This error may be caused by a bad burn of the .iso. Try re-downloading and re-burning the .iso file. Also, it may help to burn using a lower speed if the software you are using to burn the .iso supports that function.

    On Windows 7, the easiest way to convert this file is to use
    Windows Disc Image Burner

    Let us know if this helps.

  • Did you insert the dvd containing the drivers that came with your motherboard?
