What is Linux 3.1 and 4.1? Which distribution? How did you burn the disks? Were they bought or burnt?

When you downloaded the software, did you check the md5sums? These will tell you if your download is corrupt. Also, try burning the cd at 4x speed or slower, that often cuts out problems.

Do you have the option of doing extensive memory checking ? (like a memory stress-test)

It looks like that at the moment the machine is actually going to DO something (unpacking and copying), it crashes (I assume the screen 'just' goes black and the computer says 'beep', rather than the installer telling it's going to reboot, right?)

It could well be that the memory you're using is having issues...
