What happens if you run the Media Check option on the DVD? Run it if you can.

check that and also when you download the file check the verify the md5 of the file with the given md5 to make sure you got everything correctly. Also I know that sometimes the restarts can be cause by bad memory. so if everything else checks out try and do a memtest, I am pretty sure suse comes with one on the disk, I think it is an option.
