Windows 8 pro, Error code:0xo00000e9

I bought the Windows 8 pro for my computer, but every time i try to boot the DvD all i see is the windows 8 symbol and about 10 minuets later i get this error.

There was a problem with a device connected to your PC
An unexpected l/O error has occurred.
Error code:0xo00000e9
This problem can happen when a removable storage device is removed while it's in use or is failing.Properly connecting any removable storage and restarting your Pc may fix this problem.

The dvd dose not make it to the setup screen. I have tried unplugging everything from the motherboard. All usb 3.0 devices, all extra hard drives, mouse and key board and even unplugged the graphics card and used the on board graphics with no luck.  

I don't think my DvD writer is bad because i use it all the time, also i can read the files on the windows 8 DvD.

It helps if you search without your typo but there isn't much about that code for W8...

The best I can find is:

(BING search for

    0xc00000e9 w8
)
