Either you have a defective CD, or a defective Hard Drive, or defective memory. Firstly is this a clean install? Try reformatting the drive and running chkdsk or a manufacturers disk utility. Then remove fingerprints and other marks from CD by wiping from the centre outwards. Let me know how you get on.

Windows will not start due to missing or corrupt file.

I am sorry but due to your EULA we cannot provide you with a key for this software. You must contact the publisher for a legally obtained key. FixYa TOS does not allow for us to assist with copies of keys, codes, ids, or software as it is against the law.

Software Counterfeiting
This type of piracy is the illegal duplication and sale of copyrighted material with the intent to directly imitate the copyrighted product. In the case of packaged software, counterfeit versions often include copies of CDs or diskettes containing the software programs, as well as related packaging, manuals, license agreements, labels, registration cards, and security features.

Software Piracy is stealing. If you or your company were caught pirating software, you could be held liable under both civil and criminal law. If a copyright owner brings a civil action against you, the penalties in the U.S. may be up to $150,000 for each program copied. The U.S. government can also criminally prosecute you. If you are convicted, you can be fined up to $250,000, sentenced to jail for up to five years, or both.
