Upon installing a fresh copy of windows on a sata HD right at the very end of copying all the files it throws the error.

Either your installation CD is bad, or the CD drive you are using is bad. Make the CD again, burn it at the lowest speed, and if possible burn it using a different drive. Sometimes such read errors also happen if the RAM is bad, so at first use memtest86+ to test the RAM (it should be included on the Ubuntu CD, at the CD Boot Menu).

rindi is correct; it only means, when it tries to install the registry hive, it finds line 0 of hivecls.inf is bad.
it can also be caused by a bad cd drive, cd cable, or cd controller on board
