Windows 7 installation error concerning ntfs

New here and was wondering if anybody could help me with this issue.

Just decided to upgrade from SP3 to 7 today, downloaded, burned and now when i boot from disk. windows loads then an error pops up saying

"Windows failed to load because a critical , missing, or corrupt"


Would appreciate the help if anyone can. Thanks

Corrupt media is the most likely issue here. Try burning the 7 image at slow speeds on reliable blank media.
