My nephew had a similar problem. He tried to install a game and during the install process he had an error which meant the install essentially failed and it would be rolled back, which should in theory uninstall all the newly installed files.
The reason why he had the issue you have with this message is because he removed the install or game disk before exiting the set up properly. What he should have done was exit from the intall menu before he removed the disk.
Now he didn't have the error message re appear after he re started his machine as I understand you do and that indicates to me that the game you tried to install did not properly roll back and there is still some or most of the game on your machine, but not all.
You may try to re install or system restore, but I would suggest you try the game web site support and read through other consumers posts. You may well find the problem isn't new and the solution is already posted.
everytime i start up the computer i get the message " there is no disk in the drive. please insert disk into drive \device\harddisk1\DR2". there are three buttens that come up with this. cancel, try again, and continue. i just do continue and the computer works normaly. but when i try to start up adaware the same message comes up and it wont go away this time. and i tried installing a game on my computer, but it kept getting an error message. because of lack of memory. but if its in the I drive((my main drive, insted of C drive. ya i have an odd comp)) then i know something is wrong, cause i checked and it has 32 gigs left of memory. and this only needed 1 gig i think.
