Sorry, but I don't understand - if it is reading the disk what is your exact problem?
Another option is to download and install PSE11 from http://prodesigntools.com/photoshop-elements-11-direct-download-links-pse-premiere-pre.htm l and use the serial number from your boxed product. Follow their 'Very Important Instructions' exactly. Skip a step and you'll likely get an authorization error or download the current version.
Cheers,
