And one of these disks worked on a different system?
Interesting that the installer reported a write failure (which must
have been the hard disk), but the console reported a read failure on
the CD. Try a minimal install, and maybe you will avoid whatever is
causing the specific issue. [And if not, you may well have a clearer
set of symptoms.]
