Default Windows Crash From OverClocking

I was Overclocking my computer. I had it completely stable at 2.688ghz. Then i tryed 2.7ghz again. Then it crashed on me. My cpu is fine, the temps were very low, nothing over 38 degrees celcius. Nothing is burned at all, just windows got jacket up, so im not completely mad. Rite before i manually turned my system down. I had this message saying windows blah blah blah was currupt. When i try to boot up, i get this message.

Windows could not start, becasue the following file is missing-

Now, i have a burned copy of windows. Is their anyway i can fix this problem without completely installing windows all over. Then installing Raid0 and all my other hardware? I built it myself, so theirs no recovery disk. So i would have to install everything independentlly.

Finished With TF.
