  • 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 http://www.memtest86.com/.  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.
