    Harddrive might be failing.. At least that's what my problem was at one point.. Do a sector scan of it if you can.. I use HDD Regenerator

    The first thing I would ask.... how much room do you have on the Partition.....
    to uncompress it uses the TEMP-TMP on C: -
    2nd thing have you defragged if you have enough space available.
    you youranswer #1 is over 20GB
    if you answer to #2 yes - defragged
    3d did you verify the burn...
