  • yes this is the same error massage that i am getting
    Wednesday, January 14, 2009 10:36 PM
  • I am having the same problem. Things seem fine until it starts expanding files. It shows the same error code. Did anyone figure it out?

  • I'm having the same error in a VirtualBox VM.
    Thursday, January 15, 2009 3:52 PM
  •  I had the same problem on a custom built pc.  I burned the iso again at a really slow speed. (8x)  No problems now.
    Thursday, January 15, 2009 4:33 PM
  • I had the exact same error except mine crapped out at 24%.

    Try investigating the corruption first.  Reburn the DVD at a slower speed, try a different burner if available.  Then try re-downloading the image.  That turned out to be my problem.
    Thursday, January 15, 2009 4:50 PM
  • I'm getting the same error installing on VirtualPC 2007. I'm capturing the ISO directly from my HD rather than burning it to DVD. I'll try that next.

  • Does anyone have the valid checksum for the x86 iso?

    Thursday, January 15, 2009 7:57 PM
  • model is    dell desktop xps-gen-2 mainboard-dell computer corp.-0u2424 and bios-AO6.I am thinking to repair my OS and then try install again.

  • thanks but this DVD worked on my brothers computer so i dont think thats the problem.
    Thursday, January 15, 2009 8:06 PM
  • I re-downloaded and got a different md5 hash, which matches one found at http://www.mydigitallife.info/2008/12/24/windows-7-beta-1-6170000-70000081212-1400-screenshot-and-iso-details/

  • Now I'm 100% sure is not corrupted media cause this workaround worked:

    First install Vista and then install Seven from inside Vista but in another partition (not the upgrade option but the custom option).

    It seems some drivers are missing or are not compatible with DELL.

    I was getting the same error when trying to install 64bit version from DVD boot.    32bit version installs without fault.
     
    I also tried burning a new DVD at 4X speed and was still getting this error at 57% during expanding.

    Motherboard is Gigabyte GA-EP45-DS4P, Intel Q9450 2.66Ghz with 8gig RAM and brand new Pioneer DVR-216.

    In the BIOS I disabled anything to do with USB , dragged out a USB to PS/2 adaptor for my mouse, keyboard already has PS/2 connecter.  So essentially I had nothing plugged into USB ports.

    Restarted computer, Windows 7 64bit now installs perfectly.  Very happy now.

    Hopefully this might work for you too.

  • I have same problem with a Dell, Optiplex 620, BIOS A11 (11/30/06). I tried multiple .ISO downloads and multiple DVD media types all with same results.
    Friday, February 06, 2009 3:30 PM
  • I have the same problem on my older system with an ASUS A7V133 motherboard. I know the DVD is fine because the checksum matches and I have used it successfully in a virtual machine. Here is the section of the log which shows the failure.

  • Same problem on ASUS P5QL-E .
    Monday, February 09, 2009 8:39 PM
  • I have the same  problem, custom built computer. Asuz PS5K mother board, Pentium Quad core, 2.66 Ghz each core, 4GB Memoery, 1066Mhz, and 2 hardrives, one is 200GB the other 150GB. Get the error message at 47% and tried installing on the other hard drive, same senario. Any sugestions? Thanks
    Wednesday, May 06, 2009 6:10 PM
  • I had the same error message.  Spent days checking the hash on the ISO images, reburning the image at different speeds, downloading the ISO image again.  I installed Win XP Pro on my new PC just to make sure I had no problems installing an OP system.  I was running the Win 7 RC and used its memory tester to check for problems - none found.  I swapped DVD drives, tried three different hard drives and then I ran across a posting that said the memory tester in WIN 7 is very basic and to download MEMTEST86 and let it run.  It found memory errors less than 30 seconds after it started.  Pulled all my memory and tested them one by one and found a bad stick.  Put my three good sticks in and Win 7 Pro 64 installed with no problems.

  • I have built the same machine as you with regard to the processor, motherboard and ram and am still fighting to get 7 Ult /64bit installed and the install cracks up at between 75 90% - I'll try the trick with the USB ports but fail to see what the relevance is to the problem. I also burned the DVD at the slower speed and standard clocked the processor as well.  I think that it is time for Microsoft to step in and address these issues - some of us dont have the time to mess about and my confidence in 7 is ever so slightly slipping at the moment.

  • I have a 32 Vista Home Basic, Gateway LTE3114u netbook AMD Athlon 64 processor and I am getting this same issue when expanding files. I have downloaded it 4 times, got a copy of the ISO from a friend who installed Win7 Home prem on his machine burned at 4x speed and I am still getting this issue.
    Monday, October 26, 2009 3:05 PM
  • 570 = 1392  - The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable and could be a hardware problem.

    Are you installing this using the DVD image or via server deployment? If server deployment, it would help if you provide log file details (smsts.log in SCCM) to be able to tell what process is running that is causing the issue.

    Then restart the installation process again. Are u doing a clean install or an upgrade?

  • What about for Windows XP 32bit users? I am having the same error... Upgrading to Windows 7 Pro 64bit as well... Help please! 
    Monday, October 26, 2009 6:05 PM
  • First off, are you capable of handling the 64-bit version?


    Windows XP Requirements: 
    - PC with 300 megahertz or higher processor clock speed recommended; 233 MHz minimum required (single or dual processor system);* Intel Pentium/Celeron family, or AMD K6/Athlon/Duron family, or compatible processor recommended 
    - 128 megabytes (MB) of RAM or higher recommended (64 MB minimum supported; may limit performance and some features) 
    - 1.5 gigabytes (GB) of available hard disk space* 


    Windows7: 
    - 1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor 
    - 1 gigabyte (GB) RAM (32-bit) or 2 GB RAM (64-bit)

  • On a Dell system, I found that you need to do the following before installing Windows 7 Pro 64-bit (haven't tested this for Ultimate, but I'm confident that it would work the same way):

    1. Boot into the BIOS (press F2 while the Dell splash screen is showing).
    2. Go to Drives > SATA Operation.
    3. Change from "RAID Autodetect / AHCI" to "RAID Autodetect / ATA".
    4. Press escape, choose Save / Exit.

    I hope this helps.

    Joe

  • AHCI/RAID settings would normally cause the x07b bsod

    Either way, it's worth a shot. Im curious to know if ít's going to work. 
    Monday, October 26, 2009 8:20 PM
  • Did  you run chkdsk /r?
    Is that directed towards me with XP? If so, what steps would I need to take since I think the above poser you were talking to has Vista?

    Also Joe, I will try what you said and see if that helps...

    I know my .iso is good and I've checked the files and they all are correct so it has to be something else... I want to do a clean install of Windows 7 Pro 64bit. I still have everything on my XP OS right now, should I be deleting anything that could be preventing me from correctly installing it?
    Monday, October 26, 2009 9:11 PM
  • That message was directed to all. Place your Win7 dvd into the DVD Rom and boot to it. Then navigate to the following:


    Boot to the System Recovery Options
    Click Command Prompt
    Type in CHKDSK /r and hit Enter
    Once completed, type EXIT and enter to reboot.

    As far as deleting contents from the XP OS, I would stay away from it since the issue may have to do with hardware compatibility.  
    Monday, October 26, 2009 9:43 PM
  • OK, I have booted from the .iso numerous times but I don't know how to access the System Recovery Options then Command Prompt? Is it in the bios or something?
    Monday, October 26, 2009 11:01 PM
  • Bump...
    Tuesday, October 27, 2009 1:19 AM
  • I had this error message also upgrading from XP Media Center 2005 32 bit to 7 Ultimate 64 bit.  Fond this thread.  Unplugged all my USB and 7 installed without any problem.  Didn't do anything in Bios.  Thanks to who ever figured out this fix.  To bad Microsoft doesn't tell people ahead of time that they need to do this.
    Tuesday, October 27, 2009 3:12 AM
  • I unplugged everything that was in my USBs except my mouse, otherwise I can't continue the installation. Still didn't work for me... This is so frustrating, I cannot believe they haven't even released a fix so we don't have to go through all this trouble!!!
    Tuesday, October 27, 2009 3:36 AM
  • I actually rebooted and started the installation of Windows 7 then quickly unplugged my USB mouse and got to 20% until I get the same error... Ughhhhh
    Tuesday, October 27, 2009 4:28 AM
  • You can do away without the mouse CapdYa. When it comes to entering the Product Key and such use the TAB + Keys to enter information. 
    Tuesday, October 27, 2009 4:36 AM
  • I haven't even had a chance to enter the Product Key! It starts unpacking Windows and that is when I get the errors... =/
    Tuesday, October 27, 2009 4:39 AM
  • Bump
    Tuesday, October 27, 2009 2:45 PM
  • Yes. Unplug the mouse and use the keyboard ONLY! You don't need a mouse to navigate during the installation. Use the TAB key to navigate to different sections of a popup box. 
    Tuesday, October 27, 2009 3:04 PM
  • You have to use the mouse to click "Accept" with the terms agreement. I have tried numerous times to do it with just the keyboard...

  • Check your RAM with http://www.memtest.org/

    Unpacking errors may be a hardware error.

  • It appears that the built-in Dell SATA drivers aren't recognized during the Windows 7 extraction portion of setup (when your BIOS is set with RAID Autodetect / AHCI).  I cannot speak for a non-Dell PC because my company is a Dell reseller, and I haven't had time to install Windows 7 on my wife's Acer laptop.

    My Dell is an Optiplex 755, and what resolved my issue was this (note: you should install the latest BIOS update from Dell's support.dell.com website first):

    1. Boot into the BIOS (press F2 while the Dell splash screen is showing).
    2. Go to Drives > SATA Operation.
    3. Change from "RAID Autodetect / AHCI" to "RAID Autodetect / ATA".
    4. Press escape, choose Save / Exit.
    5. Play it safe, shut down your PC and disconnect all USB devices (except the keyboard / mouse, they do not need to be disconnected).
    6. Boot off the Windows 7 installation CD (or run the .iso).
    - Do not format any volumes unless if you're data is backed up and you need the additional space.
    - I personally deleted my old Vista volume, so besides my Dell Utility partition the rest of my space was all unallocated. 
    - Install Windows 7 on the unallocated space showing.  You will not format the unallocated space.
    7. The install should get past your extraction point (somewhere between 20 - 30%) and complete the installation successfully.


    I hope this helps.... let me know if whether or not this works for you... and good luck!

    Wednesday, October 28, 2009 4:35 AM
  • The cause of my 0x80070570 problem was a memory module.  Was able to install XP but not Windows 7.  Replaced mobo before running Windows 7 Memory Diagnostic Tool which identified a RAM problem.

  • Hi,
    I have a DELL XPS M170, on the first attempt to install Win 7 it completed it but on the system reboot during the finalisation of the install it rebooted back to XP! I have since tried several different ways around this but to no avail!!!

    Joe Conde - your advice is of no help to me unfortunately as i cannot change anything to do with the HDD (none of these fields are changeable)

  • I've been having a similar experience. I *think* I've worked through it, but wanted to share my data in case it helps anyone else figure it out. My guess, based on this thread, is that this error is basically caused by a number of different config problems, but it seems that bad memory modules look like a common cause. Of course, changes in the machine config could change the state of memory when setup is running and cause you to hit (or dodge) the problem.

    I've got a new custom build on which I've run install a number of times (playing around with various configs, etc, as I get things settled in.) These have run flawlessly, but then tonight I started experiencing this error. Actually, the reason that I tried a re-install tonight is that my machine started to experience random blue screens, with very unhelpful daignostics. Tonight I tried running clean setups from both flash and (retail media) DVD with the same result of this error about 5% of the way in on two separate drives. So pretty clearly not an issue of the install media or, in my case, the system drive drivers.

    Per recommendation in this thread, I unplugged all the USB components and tried again. This time it managed to skate through. If it hadn't worked, I was going to go out and buy two new memory SIMMS and try random swaps to see what helps. I expect that when I get further along and run full memory diagnostics, I'll see some of my memory has gone south. This would be correlated with the random crashes I was seeing.

    So, my advice to folks who haven't been able to nail the problem down in other ways is see if you can troubleshoot memory problems. If you're having trouble bootstrapping far enough for that, make some changes (like the USB components) thath might change the system config enough to get you a little bit further along. But I don't expect I'll seriously be able to use the machine until I've replaced the bad modules.

  • It appears that the built-in Dell SATA drivers aren't recognized during the Windows 7 extraction portion of setup (when your BIOS is set with RAID Autodetect / AHCI).  I cannot speak for a non-Dell PC because my company is a Dell reseller, and I haven't had time to install Windows 7 on my wife's Acer laptop.

    My Dell is an Optiplex 755, and what resolved my issue was this (note: you should install the latest BIOS update from Dell's support.dell.com website first):

    1. Boot into the BIOS (press F2 while the Dell splash screen is showing).
    2. Go to Drives > SATA Operation.
    3. Change from "RAID Autodetect / AHCI" to "RAID Autodetect / ATA".
    4. Press escape, choose Save / Exit.
    5. Play it safe, shut down your PC and disconnect all USB devices (except the keyboard / mouse, they do not need to be disconnected).
    6. Boot off the Windows 7 installation CD (or run the .iso).
    - Do not format any volumes unless if you're data is backed up and you need the additional space.
    - I personally deleted my old Vista volume, so besides my Dell Utility partition the rest of my space was all unallocated. 
    - Install Windows 7 on the unallocated space showing.  You will not format the unallocated space.
    7. The install should get past your extraction point (somewhere between 20 - 30%) and complete the installation successfully.


    I hope this helps.... let me know if whether or not this works for you... and good luck!

  • Okay I'm pretty sure that there's nothing wrong with the installation package. As I had tried it on other computers and it worked just fine.
    But this time, with my friend's HP laptop.
    The first attempt, I format C: drive where XP was there, leaving the D: drive then the whole process was fine. After that when I reboot I noticed the message showing options to boot with Windows 7/ boot with earlier versions of Windows [Why did it appear when I had done a fresh install]

    Then I logged on to Windows and D: drive was hidden. So I accessed Storage Manager and tried to format it but no joy at all.

    I reboot the system with the installation DVD and tried to format the D: drive then exit the installation process.
    After that, booting up the computer was unable due to this loop message: Bootmgr is missing, press Ctrl + Alt + Del to restart.

    Now whenever I try to install Windows 7, it's stuck at 34% expanding files then an error appears: error 0x80070570

    So anyone has a solution?????

    Emergency!

  • ^ That made it work past the my old extraction point, but now stops at 82 or 83% and says " Windows cannot access the installation sources".

  • Hypez et al.,

    I followed the advice of some users on this forum (thanks to everyone), and extended it logically beyond the immediately obvious. Mine is a custom built, which ran Vista 64 bit no problems, and actually installed Win7 once, but with some problems installing later software - specifically Office 2007 Ultimate. When I wanted to rebuild the OS, it then refused to install fresh on the same system!!
    The MB is a Gigabyte GA-EP43T-UD3L, and I have two 1.5TB HDD (SATA), a Radeon 5750 and 4Gb of Crucial RAM.

    The Win 7 is Pro 64 bit on DVD.

    Having disconnected all external USB devices, updated the BIOS, swapped around the HDD from AHCI to IDE etc etc etc, it still would not play. So I then reset the BIOS, disconnected (at the MB), the external peripherals - eSATA and USB header for the front USB panel. Hey presto - a clean install with no problems.

    I can only assume that DELL are using the same BIOS and or buy MB from GB (or their suppliers).

    Hope this helps a few people.

    Regards all.

  • Skip to the end of my post for a brief summary!

     

    I bought the student version of the Windows 7 upgrade. I bought it with the intention to install in on a new hard drive in my laptop. I soon realised that the upgrade version required an old version of Windows to be beneath it in order to perform the install.

     

    I dug up an old XP disk and used that. I then started the custom install of Windows 7 by booting with a DVD I made from the downloadable Windows 7 ISO file.

     

    I formatted my drives and created the partitions as I wanted them (I have a feeling this may have been the thing that caused all of the problems). The format seemed to take less than 5 seconds which didn't seem quite right but who knows.

     

    Next I went to install Windows 7 and got the same error that everyone has talked about here. I got it around 30% of the expanding section. I repeated this a few times without rebooting and never got any further.

     

    I then used Memtest86+ to check my RAM. This took around 2 hours: no errors found.

     

    I downloaded a new copy of the Windows 7 ISO and burnt a new copy of the ISO onto DVD using Nero (My previous DVD was made using NTI).

     

    I performed a fresh installation of Windows XP with only one partition. I used the new boot disk and did not change any of the partition settings and did not format. I selected the partition with Windows XP on it and clicked OK when the "Windows Old" message came up.

     

    This time the file extraction ran all the way through to 100% with no problems and I have got Windows 7 up and running.

     

     

     

    To summarise, the possible factors causing my error could have been:

     

    1) A faulty ISO downloaded from the Microsoft shop.

     

    2) A faulty boot DVD (either due to the DVD itself, DVD writing software or the actual writing process).

     

    3) Using the format and partition tools in the Windows 7 setup.

     

    4) A bad installation of Windows XP.

     

     

    I would advise the first port of call would be to make a new copy of the ISO boot DVD (try using the lowest write speed possible and make sure to make a DVD image or complete copy). This takes no time at all.

     

    Second would be to try again without adjusting the format settings in the install process.

     

    Third would be checking for RAM errors with a free download of Memtest which takes a while but could well be the problem.

     

    I hope that helps someone, it took me 5 hours to get through the whole process.

  • I wonder if you've any notes on what you disabled in your bios. I'm running a EP45-UD3P on a new build (Seagate Baracuda 1.5 TB, Nvidia GeForce 9600 GT, 550 watt pwr supply, Intel E8400) and installing Windows 7 Ultimate (64 Bit) from factory OEM Builder DVD. I have gotten the same error several times, after changing from a USB mouse to PS-2, I started getting the error at 18% (it was at 9% with a USB installed.
    I have loaded the Fail-Safe Defaults in the Bios. I had to leave the USB 1.0 Controller enabled because my PS2 Keyboard won't run without it. I disabled the USB 2.0 controller, USB keyboard Controller, USB Mouse and USB Storage.

    I can't think of anything I've missed, yet I'm still receiving the same error.

    Anything you can think of would be greatly appreciated.
    Allow me to add a couple of notes after reading all posts on this topic. My 64-bit DVD containing Windows 7 was purchased last month (NewEgg) and is the builder's OEM version. I figure that Microsoft doesn't support it's operating systems anyway, so why pay more? This system is all new except for the DVD Burner (Toshiba/Samsung) and the RAM. (DDR2, 4GB, 667 FSB). The drive (Seagate Baracuda) was purchased last month, and came with a 100gb partition, unknown why. I understand that Seagate has released a driver to allow full use of the entire disc, however it's difficult to do that without having any operating system on the computer. This is a full-install, all new hardware except as noted.

  • This solved it for me:

    I had the same problem with an Acer Aspire 5738Z, trying to install Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit (norwegian). Tested a lot of the solutions mentioned here, like IDE mode in BIOS, re-burn image, checking that the sha1 sum of the image was right, memtest86+, and so on. Long story short, I got it to work by putting the installation on an USB stick. The guide I used is here: http://www.osnews.com/story/20795/Installing_Windows_7_on_the_Aspire_One_or_Any_Other_Netbook

    Frustrating to say the very least, but hopefully this will help people that didn't get it to work with the other solutions.

  •   You may also want to try disabling your anything associated with your floppy drive in BIOS this helped along with disabling USB related items. I ended up running a P2 port mouse and keyboard to get windows 7 to install properly. Windows 7 seems to be a bit sensitive and even a little quirky during setup to say the least. Hopefully the brianiacs at Microsoft are taking some notes from this thread.
       And a side note for you there artflick, you might want to think about upgrading that power supply if you end up seeing any number of intermitant problems in the future. Nice setup but that set up is going to demand some power. You might be alright but if you do have problems going up to a 600+ power supply would be my first recommendation.

  • I had this error on an Optiplex 755 (setup worked fine on the 760 models) and after a ton of searching and trying various posted solutions (changing DVD drives, media, memory configs, SATA BIOS settings, etc) what finally  worked for me was to use Microsofts Win7 USB/DVD Download Tool (http://store.microsoft.com/Help/ISO-Tool) to create a bootable USB drive created with my Win7 iso file.  I booted from the USB drive and setup ran without a hitch.

    Hope this helps.

  • I have the solution for everyone which worked fine for me a few times already.
    First thing no matter what you do other than change your motherboard & possibly board and memory so don't waste your time after you get the error.

    Solution that only cost $1
    Go to http://www.usenet.nl/UNF/ENG/home.cfm
    though it says free it will require you to pay $1 and you will get 14 days for free.  After you sign up you can choose to install the software or use the site over the web.  Regardless of your choice it will work like Napster except faster with no gargage software you have to install. 

    Search for windows 7 software and download a free copy but it would be a good idea to down load a couple of them.  The best file I downloaded was Windows 7 Ultimate - Januari2010 and the file was 3.3 GB.  The iso file you can burn on cd which I used a old copy of Roxio easy cd creator and put it on a DVD.  What is important to note is first you have to run the dvd in the windows enviroment.  If you try to boot from the DVD it will work fine until it begin to expand the file then you will get the normal erro and nothing with USB'S will work to fix it. 

    The Solution is to choose the upgrade option and it will run and install perfectly which will run without any prompts from you including putting in the serial number which is not needed. When it asks for the serial number just hit the enter key.

    You can continue using the Usenet.nl to down load other software up to 5 to 10 Gig, then it will still let you download other things at there slowest speed.  Save some time by downloading the windows 7 first.  I always wanted to help others like you guys have helped me in the past.  Your all welcome.  P.S. if you don't have XP you can download it here as well. I did not try vista  but it should work just fine as well.

  • Guys...

    After fighting with my laptop for hours I finally found the solution to this problem at http://alcantu.spaces.live.com/blog/cns!33D0C8BDE1D71C4F!204.entry.

    " bright idea came to mind to boot from the Win 7 RC DVD and try to run setup from the USB drive. I booted from the DVD with the USB drive plugged into the computer, and saw the Setup screen from the DVD. I selected the Repair option. After the setup program groped the hard drive for any installations of Windows (and found nothing), I selected the first option, and saw the list of repair options. I selected the Command Prompt option, and saw the Windows Command Prompt. I changed drives to the USB, which was mounted as a drive letter. I ran setup.exe from the USB drive. I took out the DVD disk (which I learned from another 0x80070570 error when the setup used the DVD to expand the files) and pressed the Install button. With the DVD out of the drive, setup used the contents of the USB drive to perform the installation (albeit slowly since the computer only has built-in USB1.1 ports), and I did not encounter any errors."

    After having tried everything, this worked like a charm.

    Note:  Before selecting the first option in repair, you should click on "load drivers"  to see what drive letter your USB is using. 

     

    Enjoy.   This one was a real pain in the 4ss

  • well i just went thru this same ____ so i thought i'd post what worked for me.

    first i googled the filename to find the correct md5sum, and then found out the iso was corrupt.

    didn't want to spend several hours downloading the entire 3gb iso over again so,

    i went over to isohunt and grabbed the 'windows 7 technet collections' torrent.

    found my version and deselected all the other ones.

    then i relocated the file to download on top of my broken iso, and then rechecked it.

    the recheck showed 99.6% complete, confirming that the iso was broken.

    so, i just let it run for 2 minutes, and downloaded the remaining 0.4%.

    ran md5sum again, and it returned the correct value this time.

    good to go!

  • I also had to solve this problem.

    In my case the solution was to take out one of those two 2GB RAM Sticks.

    My System:

    Asus P5K Pro / Intel P35

    2 x 2 GB Kingston HyperX

  • Same problem here - had same problems reinstalling the Windows XP/Media Center DVD that came with my system (would indicate corrupt files during install - tried maybe 6 times with different DVD drives, cables, a new recopy of the install DVD, etc and not always the same files had problems which should have been a big clue to memory problems but I must admit that didn't click in my mind at the time).  Decided to upgrade to Windows 7 since I prefer that anyway (and hoping it would solve the problem) and it gave similar corrupt files error messages during install.  After reading that several people here solved similar problems by removing bad memory I removed 2 of my 3 ram chips and Win7 installed fine.  Next I will reinstall the memory and run the MEMTEST86 suggested by Dirk Gently in another post to try and see which of the 3 chips I can salvage. 

    Followup - I just ran the MEMTEST86 after reinstalling the 2 previously removed RAM chips and it came up with an error in less than a minute.  Removed 1 of the newly installed RAM chips, reran MEMTEST86 with no errors.  Just to be sure, took out the newly tested good chip, replaced it with the suspected failed chip and MEMTEST86 again came up with errors in less than 1 minute. 

    So I'm this Windows install problem was definitely due to a bad RAM chip.  Many thanks to those here who offered the help that solved my problem.

  • yer im having the same problem, but i have installed windows 7 64bit before, no problem, and no hard ware changes, although i have discoverd that if i install xp, then do a clean install while xp i running i can get 32bit to install.

    my computer is a custom built one, pleanty of power. but i dont see why i cannot insall like i should.

    Friday, May 14, 2010 12:20 AM
  •  have a good idea... if your not gonna actually try to help don't post that your having the same problem... i shouldn't have to wade thru 30-40 posts of people  popping in about having the same problem to find out what i need to know. the idea here is to actually CONTRIBUTE not sit around and complain like children.
    Sunday, May 16, 2010 8:25 PM
  •  I have the same error, I install over Network & DVD
