this problem occurring due to viruses in other drive or you haven't formated the pc in right way or ur os is corrupted .
better to format the c drive again with error free os or re install the missing file in "c" drive by using os

missing SATA or RAID driver?
old install disks [before SP3] didn't have standard SATA or RAID drivers and so they had to be loaded by hand in the format process.Source(s): grampa
