What do you have in the drive?

It's telling you that what it sees in the drive isn't valid. What do you have in there? Is it a COPY of an OS installation CD? If so, try using the original.

Is that EXACTLY what the error message says? If so, I've never seen that error message before.

Try going into the BIOS and changing the boot order of the devices. You want the CD ROM to be first in the boot order BEFORE the hard drive.
