Vista Home Preium problem

Windows Vista - Home Premium
I recently installed Windows Vista Home Preium OEM. I chose to use the upgrade option from XP Home so I could revert back to XP if I didnt like Vista or there were problem. After installing Vista my harddrive kept going nuts but the memory and cpu were not. I decided to a clean install of vista but every time I run the set up program I end up with this error:
Windows cannot access required file E:\Sources\Install.wim. Make sure all files required for installation are available and restart the installation. Error Code 0x800701E7

If it helps I am running AMD Athlon64 x2 4200+ Dual Core, 160GB HD, 1GB Memory
Any help would be brilliant
