    how long are you waiting?
    as it does take a while to start moving past 0% for some reason....
    Have a look at your CD-ROM, is it still moving data off?

    You probably aren't waiting long enough. I remember it taking about 10 minutes to just go above 0%, after that, things go quicker.

    +1 to Trombe

    on my desktop it took a little less time, but on my notebook it took some 10 mins + to move past 0% and after that it was fast.

    Try installing it off a memory stick, could be a error on the disk?

    Sounds like a bad burn, try burning to a dvd from a different package, using a different burner using ImageBurn if you can. Before that, try ejecting and reclosing the cd tray. I remember having to do that somewhere in my 7 install, but I think that was when it said it couldn't find drivers for my cd drive..
