Flat file = Copied installation files from the disc to a folder. Try copying the installer files into a USB drive or so and then install using these files (essentially running setup.exe) to the laptop.
Let me take that one while Jim responds. The answer is Yes. At times, following usual uninstall procedure will leave certain files/folders/reg keys behind. Clean install procedure takes care of that (while not every reg entry) that would affect your next install.
1. Do you have Roxio Creator 10 or Roxio Creator 2010?
2. It is a standard behavior for DVDs with "No Menus" to loop. You will need to re-author a DVD and add a menu. Burning an existing disc image or .ISO will create identical copy of the source disc.
Would you happen to have a different system to assess if the installation disc or drive is an issue? If yes, try copying the installation disc to a flat file and see if you end up with that same issue. If yes, I suggest requesting TS to send you a temp download link.

Region is more related to hardware for eg drive set to read specific region video DVDs. However, Toast creates region free DVDs and will be playable anywhere in the worl as long you encode it to appropriate region i. e. PAL OR NTSC.
Sounds like you have a bundled version of Sonic application on the system. If you were supplied with the installation discs for the product with your system, you could attempt to locate the file on the disc. If not you will have to try contacting HP for further assistance.
