    This problem occurs due to problem in ISO file. Make sure that your ISO file is correct and you have downloaded the ISO file from the official site of Microsoft. The another reason for this error can be the wrong Burning Process. You must use slow burn speed to burn the ISO file on to the DVD. Your computer is reading the DVD which ensures that there is no any problem with the DVD writer. If your ISO file is not corrupt then you can try the installation process through your USB drive.You will have to make your USB device bootable in order to install windows 8 using USB.

    dear friend,

    it may be the problem of ISO file.

    the file you are using may be corrupted.

    use the original Windows 8 disc to install it.

    it'll be better if you use data from usb to install the OS.

    Hi,

    It is definitely a problem of missing or corrupt DVD controller ISO file.

    The Windows 8 you are installing contains an invalid copy of the ISO file , reasons of which may vary from a corrupt file to a bad media or optical drive problem etc.

    But you should collect a copy of that specific ISO file from the microsoft Original Website and install it in your computer.

    Or you may try to install the Windows 8 again using the DVD drive or USB, after activating USB as a bootable drive first.

    Thank you.
