Last time i did this i copied the files from the iso onto the machine and installed from the machine.
If you cant copy the files then the disk may be scratched and the data unreadable/

Its recommended to copy the installer contents to a local drive and then perform the installation and that too preferably from the original DVD instead of the mounted iso because iso might miss few files..
