Default HELP! Trying to install Windows 7

Can someone PLEASE help me?
My laptop is Windows XP and I am trying to install Windows 7 on it. I put the CD in and I get an error message that says:

"Windows was unable to create a required installation folder. Please reconfigure your boot.wim file to use the flag 9 settings for the first image, and restart your installation"
Error code 0x8030002F

I have looked for hours online to try and fix this but cant find anything to help me.

Can someone help me out? Much appreciated.

have you tried this?

also, do yourself a favor and do a nice clean install, as in backup, format, install. Although, the upgrade should go smooth, there is nothing like the smell of a nice, clean system.

I did the repair tool and it didnt do anything.

I am not very good at computers..how do I go about doing a fresh install? I have nothing to back up on my computer. There is nothing on it.
