problem reinstalling, missing file or entry

i tried to install windows 7 using the installation cd.i selected the option to download latest installation files from the Internet. After about an hour, it said one of the setup files was missing. I chose repair your computer, and this message appeared: the selected entry could not be loaded because the application is missing or corrupt status 0xc 000000f, file name is winload.exe.i checked the bios boot order, it already has cd rom as first option then hard disc. The Pc already had windows 7, but i want a clean install. what should i do? Thank you for any help.

Welcome to the Forums!,

Have you checked the installation disc is not scratched etc..

I would probably try doing another clean install without selecting the option Download Latest Installation files.

thanks for your reply.i can't see any scratches on the disc. I can't get to the place where it says, install using Internet for latest files, it go straight to the place where it says there's an error.

Is this installation disc a CD or a DVD?

Did it come from Microsoft?

You need to boot the Win7 disk to Clean Reinstall Windows 7 which provides the Drive Options to delete all partitions for the cleanest install.

If the problem persists try cleaning the disk, then Troubleshoot Windows 7 Installation Failures - Windows 7 Help Forums

Thank you for answering my questions.

I asked them for a reason. Just to make sure you were using the proper media.
