I have recently downloaded and burned the iso recovery disk to a dvd, and everything has worked fine until i tried to reinstall my computer.
When i get to installing it:
-Language Settings
-Product key
Right after i enter the product key, and the installation should start, I get this error message:
"Windows cannot open the required file E:\Source\Install/wim. The file does not exist. Make sure all files required for the installation are available and restart the installation. Error code: 0x80070002".

Thank you very much for your help.


Edit: on the installation cd, there are only: the boot file (having: bcd, boot.sdi and bootfix.bin in it), sources file( having boot.wim) and the bootmgr.

The Recovery Disk can not be used for install purposes. There are multiple topic about this all over the forum along with it being listed in our Wiki as well. You will have to get replacement media from the manufacturer to reinstall.
