Attempting to install Windows 7 Ultimate on to a blank hard drive from the reinstallation DVD
Part way through the installation I get the following error message window:
Setup.exe - corrupt file
The file or directory \Boot \Fonts is correct and unreadable. Please run the Chkdsk utility.

I have run Chkdsk on the destination hard drive and it reports no errors.
Can anyone help me?
Thank you,

Did that Windows 7 Ultimate reinstallation DVD come with the same computer that the blank hard drive is in?

Yes to the best of my knowledge although I purchased this laptop slighly used. It came with 3 hard drives, 2 installed and one extra. It was upgraded from W7U to W8Pro prior to my purchase. It came from Dell with W7U installed. I am attempting to reinstall W7U on a second hard drive other than the one which now contains W8 hoping to have 2 OS, one on each installed drive so by changing the boot order I can boot to either.

What's the model name and model number of that Dell laptop?

What's the 7-character "service tag" number on the sticker?
