Have you checked for that particular error elsewhere?http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en/itprovistasetup/thread/1e026c5c-c825-434b-8d0c-79dd8cfe29e4
Most people have said it's not a HDD fault, it's your installation medium, in your case it's the CD....
Get a fresh copy of the Disc or then try using a USB image to reinstall the OS.
You Say " Installation went smoothly with a few problems"...... Contradictory terms........ if you had a few problems at the booting level itself, nothing else can ever go smoothly.....
What Windows are you trying to install?
Is that CD/DVD drive and LG Model?
'Cos from my recollection one of the LG Models which I own does have a similar issue or did , until i flashed it to a new firmware.
