Default HP Pavillion dv9308nr help!

Hi guys. My problem is:
I have an HP Pavillion dv9308nr and I am trying to install Windows on it. First of all to even get it to boot up and boot from cd i need to try over 10 times while pressing delete for it to work and the HP logo to show up. Now once I get the laptop to load from cd-rom it enters the windows instillation and i choose the language and all the options and press start. In about 1 second it is done with the first step "Copying windows files" and gets stuck on the next step at 0%.

While all of this is happening the hard drive light on the laptop turns on for 1 second and then remains off almost the whole time.

Anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks

What Windows OS is this? I'd think that the CD/DVD is bad.

It's Windows 7 and no it's not bad there's absolutely nothing wrong with the disk.

Could be a problem with the HDD. Why are you reformatting?

Once again I know it's not HDD problem, because I've replaced the HDD with my 2 spare ones which I know work, but still has the same problem.
