Hi. I built a new computer today and tried installing windows 7.

After all the steps been the first time, after it reboots it says

Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To fix the problem:

1. Insert your windows installation disc and restart your computer.
2. Choose your language settings, and then click next.
3. Click repair your computer.

If you do not have this disc, contact your system administrator or computer manufacturer for assistance.

File: netio.sys

status: 0xc0000221

Info: Windows failed to load because a required file is missing or corrupt.

Please respond ASAP!

Probably a corrupted file. Is your disc scratched? What disk are you installing it onto?
