Most of the times, these error messages are caused due to faulty media and/or hardware. Please let us know your current set up.

1. Use wired mouse and keyboard
2. Install using only one drive. Add other drives after installation is complete.
3. Try another (new) dvd drive.
4. Set drives to ide mode in BIOS.
5. Set bios setting to default.
6. If all of these fail ask for replacement install media from your supplier.

Thanks for the help.  I had set the system to RAID 1, so I had to disconnect the second hard drive and reset the BIOS to IDE.  That did the trick.
