The file may be corrupt. The file header checksum does not match the computed checksum - Vista X64 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, i have just built a new pc which is currently running Vista X86 and is running it well, anyway i bought Vista X64 yesterday only to find that when i try to boot the disk i get an error saying "The file may be corrupt. The file header checksum does not match the computed checksum"

    I read a post from December about this problem but could not a find a working fix, also the post was about x86 so left me wondering what could be wrong as i am running that version stable.

    My Pc Spec is:
                           Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 @ 2.4Ghz
                           Gigabyte
    GA-EP45T-DS3
                           OCZ 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3 1333MHz
                           Sapphire HD 4850

    Any help would be much appreciated
