Is it a legit copy? If so, does it work on another computer? Do you have a different DVD drive you could try?

That's what I was getting to, check the CD/DVD drive first though. Otherwise it's probably a bad CD/DVD

Where are you from in the UK, if you can't get a disk let me know and I'll send you one, got lots of 1st class stamps lol, and post office outside, the disk I would be sending you is licensed and legal.
