did you try dumping the setup files to the hard drive and runing the repair from there ? or try a different cd drive cuz they can also give you problems reading or writing files.

I'll go this route. if it can't read 1 file, it probably can't read others. I'd copy them through a networked cd rom

I'm a fan of fresh installs, at least once a year. Just makes things run SOOOOO much better.
