  1. Well it looks like the disk you are using to install widows may be installing a bad file to your HDD. That's just a guess from what that error is.

    However, there is a chance that its just bad formatting of the drive.

    When you said you "Formatted your drive C:" did you format while there was still files on it? or Were you reinstalling windows.

    If you were reinstalling windows, what Format option did you choose. Quick or Full?
  2. I installed a new copy of windows 7 then i formatted my drive C , i proceed now to installing. the typical thing you do when you format your PC.
  3. Best answer
    What I recommend is that before you install windows, delete the partitions and then perform a Full Format and then create the partition, and then install windows. That way it is almost certain that there will be no corrupt data.
  4. oh is that so. thank you for the replies. there is a lot of important files in my drive d:. so i might buy a new hdd for this.
  5. That would be ideal haha. Glad I could help!
