More system specs please, also at what point in the format does this happen?

Is this a legit ISO of the OS? The disk apparently is missing a file........

any scratches on the disk then?

Ok, so if it's a proper install disk, first try to get your hands on a different install disk (just use your own personal key) and if that doesn't work, it's time to start eliminating hardware that might be faulty, and thus failing once the OS installs the full drivers for it.

Try running a boot memtest cd (obcd is my choice), if that doesn't find any issues then turn off all "extra" hardware in your bios (things like audio / lan / Floppy disk controllers / etc.... ).
