Computer locks up, so I want to reinstall the OS. I had upgraded to Snow Leopard. 

Tried to do an archive and install from the DVD that came with the computer, but that failed. 

Tried to do an erase and install, but the install stops somewhere near the end, 13 minutes to go. Tried several times, same result.

Can't reboot from the install disk, it just ejects the disk and I get the flashing question mark.

Any suggestions will be appreciated.

iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.8)
