OK, it looks bootable. Remember you need to boot from the dvd to start the installer.

Just a question....... I remember terrible screeching and tearing noises when I tried to boot up... Does that have anything to do with the failed install ?????

It maybe that the drive is having trouble reading the disk- that could be caused by bad media, bad data or a bad drive. What you can do is to extract the contents of the iso (use the trial version of winrar), then dump all those onto a bootable usb stick, install windows from there.

That's really a nice method but I just noticed that my computer only allows booting from a CD/DVD drive or a network drive, that's why I need to install from the DVD only.....

Listen, if that image is bootable, use a new disk (dont use some old, scratched rewritable) and burn with IMGburn at lowest possible speed.

Download a good ISO from the Microsoft link, where you bought the licence key from.
Delete the torrent ISO.

you could also try PowerISO. It costs money for all features, but I think burning an image is free.
