the iso may be fine ...but did it burn correctly.
i'm not sure but that looks like a read error.
try burn another disk or use a live usb

It could be having trouble with the sata, maybe with the partitioning
part of the install or writing to the drive

I would first download a new iso , burn a new cd then run the install again to eliminate a bad download as the cause.

You should post output of -
fdisk -l

You may also try adjusting bios settings from sata mode to ide mode. You may need to experiment a bit and try different setting than you have now. There should be 3 different choices
IDE mode - no AHCI, no RAID
SATA mode (sometimes called AHCI mode) - AHCI enabled, no RAID
RAID mode - AHCI enabled, RAID enabled
