    What installation method did you choose?
    To create a Clean Install (formerly known as Erase & Install) of Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard (the 29 USD Upgrade DVD is a fully working retail version of Mac OS X and does not need a prior installation of Mac OS X on the Mac), follow one of the following guides:

    Is the DVD in okay condition?

    Do you have access to any other Mac with optical disk drive (ODD) and Firewire?

    You English is okay, I have seen worse from native speakers of English.
    But you could stop using a capital letter for beginning every word.

    And when you are with your friend, you could try Target Disk Mode, though you need a Firewire cable for that.

    The error is caused by problems with your optical disk drive or your hard drive.

    external optical drives are not that expensive, pick up a cheap one and see if you can install OSX, or take the computer to your local computer store (if there is one near by) for them to diagnose the problem. The issue of it being dropped means it won't be covered by the warranty.
