  • Run the DVD on a different computer to determine whether the DVD works correctly.

  • Test your DVD drive by using an official Windows installation DVD.

  • Attach the ISO file to a virtual machine to check whether it is corrupted.

When you troubleshoot this issue, first check whether the ISO file is corrupted. Each ISO file that you download from the MSDN Subscriber Downloads website has a SHA1 value that you can compare with the SHA1 value on the MSDN Subscriber Downloads website. However, the Microsoft Volume Licensing Service Center (VLSC) site currently does not list checksums or SHA1 values.
To compare the SHA1 values for the ISO file that you downloaded, follow these steps:
