It may be needed to run Windows.
You may need to run the Windows Setup program again.

I get the same message with the files:
then I get the message:
While initializing device IOS:
Error: An I/O subsystem driver failed to load.
Either a file in the .iosubsys subdirectory is corrupt, or the system is low in memory.
