    I am running in to same issue, i have downloaded iso image twice and have burned it to new dvd thinking that there might be something wrong with the first iso image that i had installed but its not. I am getting same error message with my new dvd as well. I have formatted my hard drive completely for making clean installation, I also wanted to add that i have explored dvd and i can see Install.wim but i don't know why i am getting that error message while installing vista. Did you found an answer for this Wooody ?

    Either something is wrong with the dvd you have burned of there is something wrong with your cd rom lens because of which it is not able to real install.wim file which is must for installation. Since you have mentioned that you have tried using another dvd, i will suggest you to try out the installation on some other working machine and check out if it i working there. If it works then as i said there might be something wrong with your cd rom lens.
