I have seen this issue a couple times during my time as a pc tech. The solution we came up with was a complete reload. Mainly because in the instance's we've seen the issue was caused by a shutdown during a system restore. You may even try to do a windows repair from the CD.
Hope this help.

The checksum is a long number that is computed. This sounds like maybe your cpu is bad or going bad. You don't provide enough information to determine a solution. So...
If you are trying to install Windows and you get this error, your memory may be bad (google for memtest86), your CPU may be bad, or your CD/DVD drive may be bad. Try the easiest first. Test your memory and change your CD/DVD drive.
If Windows is already installed, your memory or CPU is bad. Test your memory. If it's good, I would have to assume the CPU is bad.
Hope that helps.
