error 0x80fe0000 - PLZ help im giving up!

Im trying to install Windows 7 on my laptop (IBM ThinkPad T43)
Now i dont know why, but it always writing me this error:
Windows could not set the offline locale information. Error code: 0x80fe0000
What i have already tried to do is:
1. Check disk to my hard drive.
2. Checking that my hard drive is primary (and it has to be because i have only one drive)
3. Setting the time and date in bios
4. Formating EVERYTHING

I dont know what to do.. :confused:

Do you get this error when your dvd-rom is set primary boot device?

(BIOS Setup -> Boot Sequence -> DVD-ROM)

Edit: just in case if something's physically wrong with your hard drive
