Bad dvd drive? have you tried to install it on another computer?
Copy-protection error? try to use the windows 2000 compatibility mode on the "setup.exe" from the dvd (right click on it, properties, compatibility tab and select windows 2000).

copy protection would have nothing to do with it.

copy protection is not active while installing. either he found a huge batch of damaged disc.

or either bad cd-rom, bad ide/sata cable.

I thought about the copyprotection thing because I remember some games (retail or demos I can't remember) that couldn't be installed because of the securom copy protection on the setup.exe file ^^ and there was this "win 2000 compatibility" trick to solve this.

"Stop all virus-scanners, firewalls, etc. for the duration of the installation.
- Stop all virtual drive software (if you have any running at all).
- Most important: Go to your BIOS settings (you have to hit a key - usually the DEL-key - immediately after starting your computer, that is before (!) Windows starts) . In the BIOS settings look for the settings of your DVD drive. Disable UDMA for the DVD drive and/or set PIO mode of the DVD drive to "0". (Both UDMA and PIO are data transfer protocols for the DVD drive. In simple words, having them enabled makes the DVD drive faster. However, Tomb Raiders copy protection seems not to work correctly with these protocols enabled - at least not on all DVD drives...)"

I would also add NO OVERCLOCKING

Its probably the RAM, do a check and see if you got the "short stick".
