help with lion bootable disk


Iv create a bootable lion disk and used to install a clean install of lion on my 2010 imac.. so the disk works fine..
the problem however is when i tried to reinstall lion on my macbook pro(without the disk) it failed when it was trying to install the OS on my mac.. i erased the hard drive.. so i figured i would do a clean install using the disk.. but when the disk loads it doesnt load into disk utility options.. i just get a window that says installing and after about 15 seconds it says there was a problem installing mac os x try reinstalling and i only have an option ok.. i dont care about restoring i just want this thing working again.

Any suggestion?

thank you
