Windows 7: Windows 7 Install - Cannot install required files... Error message

Windows 7 Install - Cannot install required files... Error message

I have been trying to do a clean install of windows 7 and I am now getting this message. I have probably done a clean install using the exact same disk 5 times before. I've tried formatting the hard drive and re partitioning. This is a custom build.

The thing that is interesting to me is that I then tried to do a clean install using a vista disk that I have, and I get a similar message.

However I am able to install Xp pro just fine. I've also tried switching out memory as well.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

A couple threads mention adjusting RAID settings in the BIOS but I see nothing regarding RAID in my bios.
