  • Hello all, I have this problem when Im trying to install windows 7 BETA.

    Windows installatino encountered an unexcepted error. Verify that the installation sources are accessible, and restart the installation.
    Error code: 0xC0000005

    Im using Windows Vista SP2.

    I have an Intel Centrino Duo 2.2 GHz , 2GB Ram & nVidia GeFORCE 8400M G..

    Please help, what can be the problem??

    Im burning the ISO file with Daemon Tools..

  • The actual error is an error in accessing memory - so that could be many different things.

    Since the error message cites your DVD drive, I'd suggest re-downloading the ISO file.  Then, burn it at a slower speed to a good, quality DVD.

    Beyond that, you can check the setup log files in the Windows\Panther sub-directory to get a better idea of why it won't install.

    You may want to also check your memory.  Although the Windows 7 DVD comes with a built in memory checker, a better solution with a more thorough check and better visual feedback is the free Memtest86  Check your memory and ensure that it passes all tests (it can take quite some time).  This is not say this is your problem, but you can eliminate a potential source of your error.
