Maybe the boot sector of the CD is defected try using a start-up disk, and then start restoring from the CD.

This could be the CD, the BIOS, or the drive.  Take a look at this similar question and the solutions: http://www.experts-exchange.com/Hardware/Q_21041117.html

I know my CD/RW is working, I could play music programs but It only fails when I have to install a program.exe in window and boot.   I could try to update the bios but before I do that any other suggestions.

Try making a copy of the CD and using that to install.
