Did you download ISO and burn it to disk?

You seem to want to do your own thing and not listen/follow what we are asking you to do or saying.

This should be eject the installer at first restart of installation.

Ok guys thanks for your help, I finally got the install to complete. The post from SIW2 with the link he gave me was exactly what I was needing, but the first try I thought was working but the error popped up again. Then when viewing other videos on the link one of them said if the error pops up again just click "OK", so I saw this after I started the install again thinking that I would do that but to my amazement the install worked without any issues...woohoo...again thanks for everybody help.
