Have you tried all of the steps in my post starting with trying to run Factory Recovery from partition which might be on there?

Check the DVD to make sure it is clean, wipe with soft moist cloth using outward motion.

Next I would extract the ISO from DVD using UltraISO and write it to flash stick: On File tab open DVD, On Bootable tab Write Disk Image, Format, Write. Boot under USB or HD"s.
