Blank Drive wont load XP Pro SP2 Install Disk

By saxguy82z ·
I recently had to totally wipe a PC and am trying to install Xp pro with Sp2. Except that when it goes to boo t the disc it just says "disc read error, insert system disc and press enter" and nothing else happens. All the bios boot options have been changed in priority to favor the Cd drive, or disabled to only check the cd drive. And just for kicks i installed ubuntu from a cd just to make sure that it could still read a cd; and that worked just fine. Do i just need a to get a new windows cd, or is there a faster cheaper option. (tight budget and all)


P.S. i do not have a floppy drive to use the boot diskette from the microsoft website
