Default Windows Installation Problem

When im installing Windows XP Home SP2 everything goes fine until it starts copying files. When it gets to about 8% it says

Setup cannot copy the file: cinemst2.sys
To retry, press ENTER.
To skip, press ESC
To Quit Setup, Press F3

So i press enter it still doesnt work so then I hit ESC. Then it says
it cant copy Cpqdap01.sys so again i hit escape. Then it keeps doing it with files like Cyycoins.chm, Digras.chm. Then when it gets to driver.cab I get a blue screen and have to shut my computer off. Can someone help me?

The disc must be scratched. You need to get a new CD for Windows somehow, and use your previous product key.

Maybe your CD-ROM isn't reading the disc properly? Do you have any spare optical drives that you can try out?
