    Unhappy Problem Installing Linux Mint 12

    I have download two desktop environment 1. Linux Mint 12 Lisa(Gnome based) and 2.Linux Mint 12 KDE

    First I tried to install Lisa and I burned 3 DVDs to get it successfully installed but It always get stuck. The dvd boots and after splash screen where countdown start for automatic start it hangs. Some times during this countdown I pressed TAB to get some option and there in options, I pressed "Start Linux Mint". I repeated these steps several times but nothing happened. I checked the MD5 HASH of downloaded images with one which is given on official website. I burned these dvds at a speed of 4 and some of them are burned at a speed of 2 with different burning software but that was not helpful too. I then downloaded another ISO from their site with different methods like one was downloaded by IDM and one by torrent. Totally I burned 6 dvds. Now I have 3 dvds of Linux Mint KDE and three dvds of Linux mint Lisa. I tried them on VMware and each of them was working fine, without any problem. But whenever I try to dual boot them with Windows 7 they are not installing easily. After several attempts(like 20 or 30 times) I installed Mint Lisa and dual boot with Windows 7. Then I removed Mint Lisa and restore windows boot loader.Now windows is starting good with no problem. Then I installed Mint KDE with several attempts. In these attempts the installation was giving me this error- "cannot mount dev loop0 cdrom casper filesystem.squashfs on filesystem.squashfs" and sometimes it was showing "EDD error reading sector 31" error.

    So please help me because I removed both of them but now I want to use Mint KDE. Please help Me I tried google but found nothing helpful.

    No one is answering my query so let me reply to myself. My bad DVD drive was the cause behind all these problems. Because when I tried to boot with these DVDs on my laptop these DVDs were working fine.
