Windows 7: Windows 7 install DVD won't boot because of corrupt files

Windows 7 install DVD won't boot because of corrupt files

I've been trying out several tutorials such as the sfc, bootrec etc.

Nothing seems to work. I can use a windows repair disc but it's not fixing the problem. When I use my windows 7 installer, upon boot it loads driver and stuff but then gives out this error (attached pic)

So I tried sfc and bootrec but the problem still persists.

This is my SFCdetails file attached


Hoping you guys can help me. All my data is secured and I just want to wipe everything and install from scratch.

So what is the problem then, if you just want to wipe your drive ?

I always use a Partition Wizard Boot CD to setup a drive. But your install disc should do everything you need, but if it`s corrupt you need to create a new one.

If you need to create a new install dvd follow the instructions on this page to download the iso file you need, then burn to dvd at no faster then x4 speed.

I already have the iso. I just can't get past that corrupt file thing. I guess i'll try those. I just ran out of DVDs though so I'll try tomorrow.

Then maybe your iso is corrupted ??

Just download a new one.

This is driving me crazy. The last iso I had came from the website you gave (techbench) and it was with the help of microsoft customer support (remote)

So i used partition and wiped everything, restart with the install disc and the same error popped up. Currently using my repair disk to restore my back up.

I guess the ISO is the problem, but it came from Microsoft and the download finished properly. Used poweriso and burned at 4x only.

Are you positive you are booting from the disc ?

The 1st line on your screen says "Windows failed to start"

Yes, there's no other boot available.
Screen says press a key to boot from cd/dvd
Laptop loads drivers and stuff, then it gives that error.

My repair disc works. Just not the install disc. I have 5 already made. The last one came from that techbench technique

I used poweriso to burn the dvds at 4x

Maybe I should have the DVD burned in a PC repairshop or something
