Cannot find require file /sources/Install.wim

  1. As mentioned on my post above, windows cannot find Install.wim when trying to install Vista. Its really quite unusual, also, I have a copy of Mac OS X x86 which normally boots fine off DVD, but I am now having trouble with that too. It seems to me that the problem is more then likely connected, whether its the files being copied to the hard drive are being corrupt (unlikely because to install OS X x86 you use a Live CD to install and it hangs before the installation) or a problem with my DVD burner, whether its a problem in burning or most likely, in reading the dvd's. Any suggestions? Because as Ned Flanders says "as the tree said to the lumber jack, I'm stumped" :p
    cheers

    Thanks for the link Bobbye, but it turns out I just needed to unplug and replug the drive, like a kind of reset i guess, works normal now. Thanks for the help.
