    Installing Windows

    Hey guys, can someone please help me

    I currently have an activated windows 8 installed on my laptop which is great because activating windows 8 really was difficult for me.
    The problem is, I had it installed on a wrong partition (D) which is only 22.6 GB.

    The reason why I did this was because I had my previous version of windows (Win 7) installed on partition :C, and I wanted :C to be clean before I install windows 8 but my windows 8 installer is not bootable so I installed my windows 8 on partition D then formatted partition :C by simply going into My Computer and clicking "Format".

    So now when I'm about to install windows 8 on the formatted partition :C, before it finishes its installation, it shows an error that says it cant continue the setup because some files are missing or corrupted.

    Can anyone please help me or tell me what do????

    I also tried installing windows 7 but it also gives me the same error.
    I tried installing after effects, not successful either.
